An Alaskan husband and wife were arrested for two separate DUIs on the same night while driving separate vehicles, reports NBC KTUU.
On Thursday evening, Alaska State Troopers in Anchor Point stopped a Subaru station wagon after allegedly watching the driver drive erratically and cross the road's center line on several occasions. The police discovered 43-year-old Shannon Alman behind the wheels of the vehicle and the woman was apparently intoxicated. At the time of arrest, the woman was transporting her child in the vehicle and she says that she was following her husband who was driving the vehicle in front of her.
During the stop, Shannon Alman's husband reportedly walked back to the scene of his wife's arrest from their residence. At this point, the Alaska State Troopers suspected that the 51-year-old husband was drunk as well and had been driving drunk just moments before. He was also arrested for drunk driving. The state troopers never observed Peter Alman to drive drunk; however, the authorities stated that the circumstances of the arrest supported the DUI charge.
Because Shannon Alman was also transporting her child in the car at the time of the alleged DUI, she was also charged with first degree child endangerment.
