A Kentucky woman's day ended like it began: getting booked for allegedly driving drunk.

Tiffany Henderson, 29, of Bowling Green, Kentucky was arrested in the early morning hours Sunday for allegedly driving under the influence. Later that same day, Henderson was arrested again on similar charges. Henderson had spent a total of six hours in jail in between her two arrests.

The first arrest occurred at around 5:45 a.m after police received calls at around 3:30 a.m. about a reckless driver who had been spotted skidding off the road. Henderson was found in a field and had allegedly been in the driver's seat of her vehicle, according to an arrest citation obtained by The Lexington Herald Leader. She could not perform a sobriety test at the time, police said.

She was held at the Warren County Detention Center until around noon, according to WBKO of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Sheriff Brett Hightower said that the second arrest occurred at 9:18 p.m. after several people once again called in to complain about a reckless driver in the area, prompting an investigation.

As she was arrested the second time, Henderson told police she had just been in a physical altercation with her mother and had needed “to get away," according to the arrest citation. Craig Runner, a witness to the dispute, says Henderson smacked him in the face as she fled the scene. Henderson allegedly returned, got into a second physical altercation with both her mother and Runner, and fled again. She almost hit two unnamed juvenile witnesses who were riding bikes as she was “flying down the road," according to the arrest citation.

Henderson's first arrest landed her a DUI charge. But upon the second arrest, Henderson was charged with DUI, public intoxication, domestic assault, and wanton endangerment.

The status of Henderson's legal representation remains unclear.

Henderson allegedly has admitted to using prescription drugs and methamphetamine. She has not been previously convicted for a DUI.
