AUSTIN (KXAN) — An Austin woman who had two previous DWI convictions was arrested Tuesday after police say she drove up a flight of stairs at The Domain shopping center and got stuck. 

On July 3 around 12:40 a.m., police were called to the corner of Kramer Lane and Domain Drive where there’s a 4-way stop. The driver, identified as Diana Johnson, 55, told police she took a wrong turn and drove up the stairs, where her vehicle ended up getting stuck. 

According to the affidavit, Johnson drove up more than five steps and got stuck at the top. If her vehicle hadn’t gotten stuck, “she would have ran into the building,” according to the affidavit. 

When the officer asked her how much she had to drink, she replied she drank “too much for how much sleep she had.”

Records show Johnson had previous DWIs in 2008 and 2012.
