July 11 (UPI) -- A drunk driver in Louisiana was arrested while attempting to bail out her friend who had earlier been arrested for drunk driving.

Slidell Police Department said officers pulled over a "car full of drunks" on Saturday night and arrested the driver, who was charged with a DWI.

About an hour after police secured the offending vehicle in the parking lot and the passengers took a cab ride home, the woman decided to return to the scene to pick up the vehicle and get her friend out of jail.

"She then drives drunk to the Slidell Police Department in order to bail out her friend. Instead of bailing out her friend, she's was able to join him inside the jail," police said.

Upon arriving at the police department, the woman was arrested for drunk driving and police hoped she learned a valuable lesson.

"Lesson of the day...don't drive drunk to a police station in order to bail out your drunk friend!" police said.
