A Bellevue woman was arrested for driving under the influence in Washington just hours before her wedding. The unidentified 31-year old was reportedly returning from a bachelorette party around 6:00 am Saturday morning when she was spotted weaving in and out of her lane and traveling in excess of 90 miles per hour on I-405.
A Washington State Patrol trooper said the woman admitted to a prior Washington DUI arrest and said she knew the routine. She apparently was anxious to get the booking under way because she was to get married in an early-afternoon ceremony. Upon her release, she took a taxi home.
The bride registered a blood alcohol content of .146%. The threshold for intoxication in Washington is .08%. After her honeymoon, she will face charges of drunk driving in King County Washington District Court.
