A high-powered lawyer who worked for President George W. Bush reportedly had one crazy night in Virginia that ended in jail.DLA Piper partner Laura Flippin was partying in Williamsburg, Va., in September when the trouble began, William & Mary student newspaper The Flat Hat reported Tuesday.

A police officer reportedly found her bloody, with her car keys in her hand.

The cop testified that he took her to jail, where she walked into a wall and couldn’t hold herself up, The Flat Hat reported.

On Tuesday, a judge not only found Flippin guilty of being drunk in public but also accused her of lying under oath when she said she’d had only half a gin and tonic, The Flat Hat reported.

“In my mind, I do not believe her testimony today,” Judge Colleen K. Killilea reportedly said.

She’s on the “board of visitors” for her alma mater, which the school calls its governing body. Flippin was also a special assistant to Bush and deputy assistant attorney general at the Justice Department.
