DUI arrests for Parkersburg are now at 184 for the year.

Police say this woman was arrested twice this weekend. Late Saturday night, police say Emily Jessup was found passed out in a car at the McDonalds drive-thru.

She was arrested and charged with DUI of a controlled substance, given a ticket and released. Then, on early Saturday morning she was found in the drivers seat of the same car.

This time in the 7-11 parking lot. Police say she failed sobriety tests and admitted to taking prescription medication.

She was once again charged with DUI of a controlled substance and is awaiting arraignment.

Police arrested six other people over the weekend for DUI. They're reminding people to not drink or take illegal substances and drive, especially during the holiday season when so many families are on the road.
