LAKE OSWEGO, Oregon (KPTV) — A drunk woman who received a courtesy ride home from Oregon officers was arrested after driving her car back to the bar, according to police.

Lake Oswego police said they were called to the Firehouse Pub on Wednesday night. Bar workers said a customer was too drunk to drive or even walk home.

A department spokesman said Shannon Waage was given a ride home by the officers and told not to drive anywhere.

Less than an hour later, police were called back to the bar. Waage had returned, this time driving herself, according to police.

Waage was arrested on DUII charges and her car was towed from the bar, police said.

Waage posted bail and is due in court April 29.
