SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State police say they've arrested a woman for two different drunken driving crashes in the same day.

Troopers from Somerset say Michele Leonard, of Somerset, crashed her car about 5 p.m. Saturday.

She was arrested, charged with drunken driving and then released.

Police say that's when Leonard offered a stranger $3 for a ride back to her crashed vehicle, which she entered and began driving again.

Police say Leonard again lost control of the car, and sideswiped a parked car in Somerset Township about 6 p.m., then crashed into a garage.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Leonard, whose age has not been released by police.
