A North Tonawanda woman was arrested three times overnight in the City of Tonawanda.

Police say it all started about 11pm Wednesday when 50-year old Denise Ellingson refused to leave her boyfriend's house and began yelling and swearing in the street at police officers and her boyfriend.

Ellingson was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, issued an appearance ticket, and released to her daughter.

At 2 am, officers saw Ellingson driving her vehicle on Young Street. Officers stopped her and say she told them that she got into her vehicle in North Tonawanda and drove back to her boyfriend's house in an attempt "to talk to him."

Police arrested her on the spot for felony DWI due to a previous conviction in 2014.

Officers also noticed she had a large butcher knife on the front seat. Because of that knife, police went back to the boyfriend's house to check his welfare.

He told officers Ellingson came back to the house and was banging on his door, but he refused to open it.

Ellingson was additionally charged with trespass for returning to the boyfriend's home.
