An Indiana woman was arrested for driving while intoxicated after she illegally and haphazardly parked outside of a jail before trying to post bond for a friend, officials said.
Angela Delaney, 58, allegedly left her 2005 Dodge Neon illegally parked outside the Gibson County Sheriff’s office at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday, authorities said.
Deputies responding to a call at the sheriff's office of an intoxicated woman trying to bond out an inmate launched a “jail-side” investigation and determined that Delaney was allegedly under the influence.
