Getting a DUI should be enough to make someone stop drinking and driving but for one woman this wasn't enough. WGNS' Emily Kinzer has the story.
VERBATIM: Murfreesboro Police pulled over Christie Prater on Sunday for driving the wrong way on the 1-way downtown square in Murfreesboro. The officer suspected she had been drinking and gave her a field sobriety test. After failing the test she was taken to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. But this isn't the first time either. She already had two DUI's from 2007 in both Rutherford and Davidson counties. She was jailed instead of paying the $3,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on October 28th.
