Woman tried to drive her SUV down a flight of stairs because her GPS told her to

A 26-year-old woman in Portland, Maine says she was just following her GPS when she drove her SUV into the police station's garage, across the city's "pedestrian plaza," and then down a flight of stairs to get back onto a street.

But the Portland Maine Police Department sees it differently, blaming her haphazard driving on "her excessive blood alcohol level."

Either way, her GPS did good: her banged up SUV got stuck on the stairs, ending a joyride that could have caused serious damage.

From WLTX News19:

"She said she was following her GPS instructions but responding officers felt it was her excessive blood alcohol level," the department wrote on Facebook.

The woman was issued a summons for an OUI, or operating under the influence, commonly known as a DUI, or driving under the influence.

"We are fortunate that she didn't strike anyone and this ended with just a small amount of property damage. Please don't drink and drive," the department wrote.
