Catherine Butler Arrested For DWI Twice In 3 Hours -- Once In Zombie Makeup

Woman Arrested For DWI Twice In 3 Hours -- Once As A Zombie

Take this story as a precautionary tale: don't drink and drive at this year's Halloween party.

On Saturday morning, police in Gates, New York, arrested Catherine Butler twice in three hours for DWI.

Butler, 26, was first arrested around 2 a.m. for DWI and for operating a vehicle without headlights, reports.

Because Butler was dressed up like a zombie, authorities believe she may have attended a Halloween party.

A friend picked her up at the police station and took her home.

Less than three hours later, Butler was allegedly caught swerving on a local road and charged a second time with DWI, reports.

This time, there was no zombie makeup.

Police said Butler's blood alcohol level was .11 percent the first time and .09 percent the second time. Both were above the legal limit of .08 percent, reports.

Police said the second DWI marked Butler's fourth arrest for driving drunk. The other two were in 2006 and 2011.

Despite the earlier arrests, police said Butler had a valid driver's license because her earlier DWI charges were reduced to impaired driving, allowing her to keep driving legally.
