Bellevue bride busted for DUI hours before wedding

Posted by John de Leon

The bride wore ... jail scrubs?

A 31-year-old Bellevue woman was arrested early Saturday on supicion of DUI just hours before she was to walk down the aisle, according to the State Patrol.

The woman was pulled over just after 6 a.m. after a trooper spotted her weaving in and out of her lane and driving at more than 90 mph on northbound Interstate 405 near Northeast Eighth Street. The woman told the trooper she was heading home from her bachelorette party in Issaquah and was getting married that afternoon in Burien.

The woman admitted she had been arrested once before for DUI and said she was familiar with the routine, the State Patrol says. Her blood-alcohol level was measured at .146, nearly twice the legal limit in Washington.

The woman will face charges in King County District Court, the State Patrol says.
