LINCOLN, R.I. (TheBlaze/AP) — File this one under "painful irony." Rhode Island State Police say a husband and wife both face charges of driving under the influence after they were stopped separately on the same night.

Police say 43-year-old Stephanie Souza, of Warwick, was stopped in Cranston on Friday, and a chemical test on her at the Lincoln barracks indicated she'd been driving under the influence. But chaos for the Souza family didn't end there.

Authorities say that 44-year-old Michael Souza was also pulled over for a motor vehicle violation in Lincoln while driving to get his wife, then taken into custody. They say a chemical test on him at the Lincoln barracks indicated he was also driving under the influence.

A number for the Souzas could not be located Sunday and they could not be reached for comment.
