Unfortunately, even with three boobs, prison clothes still look bad on everyone.

You may remember Jasmine Tridevil, aka Alicia Hessler, who claims to have added a third prosthetic boob to her body. Well, she's been arrested in Tampa, Florida for a DUI.

[ Video: Jasmine Tridevil Says She Knows She's Crazy, But She Can PROVE Her Third Boob is Real! Plus, She Gave It A Name! ]

Her BAC was twice the legal limit, and she was booked at 3:47am at the Orient Road Jail. She's still being held on $500 bail, after two tests showed her BAC was .180 and .178.

Hopefully Jasmine learned her lesson because driving while drunk is NEVER a smart thing.
