LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police have arrested a woman accused of driving her car into a tattoo shop early Tuesday after she was turned away for being too drunk.

Police say 50-year-old Marie Reeves (also known as Marie French) went to Club 21 on south Shelby and Burnett Avenue during the evening hours of Jan. 24.

Investigators say Reeves and another person left the club around 1 a.m. Tuesday and then walked across the street to a tattoo shop.

An employee inside the store told Reeves and her friend they were too intoxicated to get inked and asked them to leave.

That's when police say the pair got into Reeves' car and rammed it into the store's front entrance before driving away.

Reeves is charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and criminal mischief.
