IDAHO FALLS, ID -- Idaho authorities say a mother and daughter were arrested for drunken driving within an hour of each other -- the mother when she went to pick up her daughter's dog.The Post Register reports a sheriff's officer stopped 28-year-old Alisha Gardner at 10:56 p.m. Saturday in Idaho Falls after spotting her car swerving and crossing the centerline.
Sgt. Jeff Edwards says her blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit, so Gardner was taken to jail.
Just under an hour later, 51-year-old Diana Gardner arrived to pick up her daughter's dog, which was in the car. An officer smelled alcohol on her and a test revealed that her blood-alcohol level was also twice the legal limit, so she was arrested.
The report did not say what happened to the dog.
