and drove it home. the battery is brand new. Same thing happened twice before except the car didn't die. anyone have any ideas why this happened ? before yesterday it was 3 weeks before it happened.

Get the battery and alternator checked out. All the power and electrical dying has me leaning towards that. I'm guessing the new battery is the only thing keeping that car started. The auto stores or AAA should be able to test both for you.
