A woman was arrested after she walked into a police station to inform officers that she was “too drunk to drive.”

The woman of New Zealand, drove to the police station to let officers know that he was too drunk to drive.

Amanda Jane Boyd, 50, of Blenheim, said that she thought she was doing the right thing by asking officers to help her get to where she wanted to go, and she did not expect to be arrested.

Boyd was heavily intoxicated when she arrived at the Blenheim Police Station at about 2:00 p.m.

She told police officers at the front desk that she needed to get to Christchurch, but she was too drunk to drive there and asked if they could arrange for her to get there.

Police said that when the officer asked how she arrived to the station, Boyd pointed to her car and said she was driving, but she could not drive any further because he was too drunk.

Police gave Boyd a breath tested, which showed that she was way over the legal limit is to drive.

Boyd said that she thought she was doing the right thing by just driving a short distance to the police station to get help rather than driving to Christchurch.

Judge David Ruth told Boyd that she had a serious problem with alcohol as this is the third time she was arrested for driving under the influence.
