BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - A 22-year-old Boise woman has been busted for two DUI charges in less than 24 hours.

Boise PD says Lyndsi Peterson has been charged with two misdemeanor DUIs.

The first charge happened at about 4:30 p.m. June 22 when officers on patrol on the 8100 block of Fairview Avenue Saturday afternoon were flagged down by a citizen concerned about a woman sitting in a car in the parking lot of the retail store.

The citizen told officers he had seen the woman stumbling as she left one of the nearby stores and made her way to her car. Officers found the woman still sitting in the driver's seat of the car with the engine running.

As they tried to speak with Peterson, officers say she moved very slowly, her speech was slurred and appeared to have a hard time understanding what the officers were asking of her. Officers had the woman turn the car off and step out of the car. She failed standard field sobriety tests, police say.

She was later found to be under the influence of pain killers, BPD says and was booked on DUI.

The following day, BPD says they received reports of a driver "all over the road" at 4:38 p.m. who hit a curb and drove on a sidewalk near Fairview and Milwaukee. Officers found her in a parking lot with a flat right front tire. She was later found to be under the influence of a depressant and booked for a second DUI.
