Police say a Shelbyville woman has been arrested 17 times for drunken driving.

WSMV-TV reports Dorothy Hanson's charges date back to 1985. Police say six of the offenses have taken place in the past 10 years.

Police say Friday marked Hanson's 17th DUI arrest, when she hit another car head-on. Hanson reportedly had open beer and whiskey containers in her car, and paramedics were unable to draw blood from her being so dehydrated.


Shelbyville Police Chief Jan Phillips says in addition to the DUI arrests, Hanson now has 16 charges of driving on a revoked license.

Hanson was released from jail after posting a $75,000 bond.


It's unclear if Hanson has an attorney. Her father told WSMV-TV that she's a "good person with an alcohol problem."
