Associated Press News Release

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Police say a 33-year-old woman did them a favor when she drove her badly damaged car that was missing a tire onto Alachua County Jail property.

Brielle Irene Watkins, 33, was charged with driving under the influence after jail officials noticed she was showing signs of impairment and called police on Monday.

A police report indicates the vehicle had fresh crash damage. It did not say whether she knew she was entering jail property when she drove into the parking lot.

The Gainesville Sun ( ) reports the woman's breath samples were .222 and .215, both nearly three times the limit at which someone in Florida is considered drunk.

She remains in the county jail Tuesday morning.
