When Fox Point police pointed out she was driving on the wrong side of Port Washington Road, the woman said she thought it was OK because it was a one-way.

A woman trying to make her way home after drinking in downtown Milwaukee wound up in Fox Point driving down the left side of Port Washington Road, which she told officers she thought was a one-way street.

She also said she was was coming from the south side. The passenger clarified that they were actually coming from downtown. Police asked the driver if she’d been drinking and she admitted to having about five drinks.
