Husband and wife arrested for DUI in separate incidents on same night
According to the authorities, a husband and wife in Sonoma County were both taken into custody on charges of drunken driving this weekend after he crashed a truck and she went out in search of him.
On Saturday night, officers found the vehicle of 68-year-old Robert Sevenau off Hessel Road west of Santa Rosa.
California Highway Patrol said that as the lawmen got near the idle truck, Sevenau’s wife, 65-year-old Moriah Fey, pulled up in an SUV and said the truck belonged to her husband.
A report from California Highway Patrol showed that her wife knew he was drunk “because she had been drinking with him all day and had gone out to find him”.
Fey, who was confused according to the police officers, was issued a field sobriety test which she allegedly failed. She was locked up in the jail on suspicion of driving under the influence as well as violating probation terms that aroused from a prior driving under the influence conviction, according to the officials.
Her husband was also taken into custody for driving under the influence of alcohol the same night she was arrested.
