GIBSON COUNTY, Ind. – The Gibson County Sheriff’s Office arrested a woman Saturday night after she allegedly drove under the influence to bond her friend out of jail.

Police say 58-year-old Angela Delaney of Princeton drove a 2005 Dodge Neon to the jail and parked it illegally. Officers then performed a jail side investigation and determined that Delaney was under the influence.

It’s also unclear at this time why the friend was arrested.

Authorities across the state have been cracking down on drunk driving this St. Patrick’s Day weekend by ramping up patrols and setting up checkpoints.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports more than 10,200 people died from alcohol impaired crashes in 2015 and the chance of being in an alcohol impaired crash is one in three over the course of a lifetime.

Police are urging Hoosiers to make a plan, have a designated driver, call a car service or walk if they’ve been drinking. It could save a life.
