PHOENIX — DPS arrested a woman for two DUIs during the same traffic stop on Interstate 17 recently after she tried to flee the scene.

DPS reports that about 3 a.m. on Sunday, a trooper pulled over a car on I-17 near Indian School Road. The vehicle, driven by 27-year-old Ariel Christine Davalos, was allegedly drifting from lane to lane while traveling at about 80mph.

Davalos reportedly admitted to the trooper, "I'm not going to lie, I've been drinking."

DPS say her preliminary breath test showed her BAC at .156.

Davalos was put in handcuffs and placed in the back of patrol car, with the door open.

She then reportedly slipped out of the handcuffs and ran toward her car, where she tried to put the car in gear and drive away.

The trooper pulled her back out of the car and re-arrested her.

DPS says this is Davalos' third DUI arrest in the last seven years.

She has been charged for escape and multiple counts of aggravated DUI.
