She was arrested Thursday for OWI in La Crosse.

Heidi Alberts blew a .38 that day and was later released on a $1,000 cash bond. 

Two days later, the 38-year-old was pulled over again. This time on Losey Blvd., where cops spotted her driving without headlights on around 9 p.m.

She was arrested again, after failing a sobriety test, including a .28 on the breathalyzer.

She was released on a $1,000 signature bond.
