A Massachusetts woman took the saying “love the wine your with” too far on Valentine’s Day when she continued drinking in front of officers after crashing her car, according to WPBF.

Erin Lynch, 37, allegedly drove over the center line and hit an oncoming car, according to Hingham police.

When the officer approached Lynch, he spotted a bottle of wine and wine glass in the passenger seat of the car, according to police.

Lynch was charged with operating under the influence, driving to endanger, a marked lane violation, an open container violation and a seat belt violation.
