Butte husband and wife in jail on seperate charges
BUTTE, Mont. -

A husband and wife landed themselves in jail after a Butte woman was reportedly caught driving drunk on her way to see her Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor.

Police arrested Donelda Pelly after seeing her stopped at a stop sign for several minutes, and then allegedly she side-swiped a parked vehicle while trying to park.

Her husband, George Pelly, came to the detention center to pick up Donelda's keys. Police ran his name through the system, only to find he had a warrant out for his arrest.

While booking him, police found a small bag suspected to be meth, as well as syringes and meth and marijuana pipes in his backpack.

Donelda Pelly is also charged with probation violation and several traffic violations.
