A woman was arrested and charged with drunk driving after arriving to jail in a car while drunk, according to police reports in Florida.

Gainesville Police said that a 33-year-old woman did them a favor by driving her badly damaged car that was missing a tire, onto the property of the Alachua County Jail.

Brielle Irene Watkins was charged with driving under the influence after prison officials realized that she was showing signs of intoxication and called police on Monday.

Her vehicle was involved in an accident before she arrived to prison, according to a police report.

Tests showed that Watkins had a blood alcohol content level of 0.222 and 0.215, both nearly three times the limit at which someone in Florida is considered drunk.
