MOUNT OLIVE -

Authorities say a woman drove drunk to the Mount Olive police station where she was picking up a man who had been charged with drunken driving.

According to police, Melissa Vitale, 49, of Rockaway, appeared impaired when she arrived at the station.

Vitale was soon charged with drunken driving after she allegedly failed sobriety tests.

Authorities say Robert Woolf, 45, of Washington, had called Vitale and asked her to pick him up after he had been charged with drunken driving.

Woolf was arrested after he allegedly made an illegal turn from Route 46.

It wasn't known Wednesday if either Vitale or Woolf retained attorneys.
