(AP Photo/James Prichard) (Newser) – A woman in Van Buren County, Mich., didn't have far to go after she was arrested for drunk driving. The 39-year-old is being held in the very jail whose parking lot she pulled into early yesterday, Michigan Live reports; she told police she thought the lot belonged to a bar. Officers saw the woman backing up in the parking lot of the Van Buren County Jail, urging her boyfriend, who had apparently exited the vehicle, to get back in. When a deputy approached her, he smelled alcohol. Her BAC clocked in at more than twice the legal limit, according to police, landing her in additional trouble: She's likely to face charges for drunk driving and a BAC of .17 or higher, Michigan Live notes.
