Woman shows up drunk for DUI hearing

Well, this was certainly one way to make sure you’re found guilty.  At the very least…it sure didn’t help out any future defense.

47 year old Helen Chancellor was arrested back in May for DUI…and was to be arraigned at a hearing late last week.  When she showed up for the 9:00am…that’s right, I said NINE AM…hearing, she was found to be “highly intoxicated“.

Chancellor was arrested again, this time for being intoxicated in public, and taken to the police station until she sobered up.  Her arraignment was rescheduled for November.

Please…someone keep this lady away from the bottle before the next court date.
