FARMINGTON, Conn. (WPIX) -- It was déjà  vu for Farmington police over the weekend after they say they arrested a 29-year-old woman for driving under the influence, then busted her again with the same crime less than three hours later.

Cops say Elsa Veisor, of South Windsor, was first arrested early Saturday around 1:08 am, with a blood alcohol content twice the legal limit.

According to reports, the arresting officer found Veisor, who appeared to be drunk, behind the wheel of a running, parked car.

Police charged Veisor with driving under the influence, and confiscated her license for 24 hours.

However, shortly after being released on $1,500 bail, cops who responded to the original call found the same woman they arrested earlier driving about a half mile from where her car had been parked.

Cops say Veisor was given a second breathalyzer, which registered slightly lower, but was still over the legal limit. She was arrested a second time at around 3:50 a.m., charged with operating under the influence, and operating with a suspended license.

Veisor was released on $5,000 bail, and scheduled to appear in court April 29th for both cases.
