A strange story from Florida involving a pair of sisters -- and a pair of DUI charges.

According to a news release issued by the Monroe County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office this week, authorities said a pair of sisters (ages 18 and 24)  were both arrested for DUI in the same vehicle during a single traffic stop last weekend.

According to the news release from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office:

Two sisters from Miami were both arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol Saturday night because after being stopped by deputies, they allegedly switched seats in the vehicle they were traveling in.

Because both girls were, at some point, in control of the vehicle behind the steering wheel with the keys in the ignition, they were both charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
