Gibson County sheriff’s deputies arrested Angela Delaney, 58, on one count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. She was also given a ticket for driving while her license was suspended, deputies said.

A deputy was sent to investigate around 2:30 a.m. Sunday after Delaney showed up at the jail to bond out an unidentified inmate. Deputy Loren Barchett noticed that a 2005 Dodge Neon was illegally parked in front of the building, angled the wrong way. Authorities identified Delaney as the car’s driver and said she appeared to be impaired.

Barchett ran Delaney’s name through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles database, where he learned that the Princeton woman’s license was suspended for an infraction.

Deputies booked Delaney into jail. She was not able to bond out the inmate whom she went to fetch from Gibson County Jail.
