Michigan Couple Arrested for DUI Within Hours of Eachother

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -- Doing things together is supposed to be good for a marriage, but not so much for a Michigan couple. First the husband, then his wife were arrested within hours on drunken driving charges.

Police in a Michigan town (Ypsilanti) say they stopped the man and gave him a preliminary breath test after watching him allegedly run a red light.

Police say it registered above the legal .08 drunken driving limit. He had his 12-year-old son in the car with him and police told the boy to call his mother to pick him up.

After she arrived, with her 9-year-old daughter in the car, police say the woman was tested and also found to be legally drunk.

Both children were turned over to a relative until the parents were determined to be sober.
