A woman who went looking for her boyfriend, ended up in a jail.

The highly intoxicated woman of Michigan, mistook the Van Buren County Jail for a bar, police said.

Authorities said that the 39-year-old woman smelled of alcohol and appeared intoxicated when she stopped in the parking lot of the jail at 2:00 a.m.

She was trying to pick up her boyfriend from a bar.

Deputy Robert Miersma spotted the drunk woman. A breath test showed that the woman’s blood alcohol content level was more than twice the legal state limit of 0.8 percent.

The woman admitted to police that she came from a local bar and thought that she had reached another bar where she was supposed to meet her boyfriend.

Instead, she found herself in handcuffs. The woman was arrested for drunk driving.
