Connecticut Woman Charged Two Times with Drunken Driving

April 23, 2009

Connecticut police booked a 29-year-old woman for drunken driving, and then charged her with the same crime less than three hours later when they spotted her behind the wheel again.

Farmington police say they arrested Elsa Veisor of South Windsor shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday. They say her blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit. Police charged her with operating under the influence, confiscated her license and suspended her driving privileges for 24 hours.

Authorities released her on bond and thought she was getting a ride from a friend, but another officer pulled her over shortly before 4 a.m., about a half-mile from where she was first arrested.

Veisor is due in court next week. Phone messages were left Tuesday at her home and office.
