Police say she was drunk, again, while behind the wheel.

Cops in Tomah arrested a woman for her seventh OWI charge.

They say 73 year old Peggy Mattingly was spotted drinking a beer while driving in a parking lot of a fast food restaurant.

When police approached, she showed signs of being intoxicated, including being unable to count backwards or recite the alphabet.

Police also found an empty beer can in the car, and a breath test showed Mattingly to be over the legal limit.

She has six prior drunk driving convictions dating back to 1989.
