Woman accused of drunk driving with children in her car

There are many different potential causes for driver distraction. Drivers with young children in their vehicle, for example, could face significant distractions. Unfortunately, what could simply be a distracted driver could be seen as a sign of intoxication. In fact, a Virginia woman now faces multiple criminal charges after police accused her of drunk driving.

Police claim that they eventually became involved with the woman after receiving a call about an erratic driver just after noon on a day in early September. The caller reportedly told police that a driver was repeatedly driving onto the median, and the vehicle's front bumper was hanging from the vehicle. The officer claims that the vehicle was moving at a low rate of speed and had a flat tire.

However, the driver, a 26-year-old woman, allegedly failed to stop. The officer claims that he observed the vehicle crossing the double line several times into oncoming traffic. When the driver is said to have eventually stopped in a driveway, the officer clams that the woman would not open her window or door. When he opened it, he claims that she became "belligerent."

In addition to allegations of drunk driving, the woman is also facing charges of eluding police, child endangerment and possession of marijuana. The charges against the Virginia woman are serious and will likely have life-altering consequences if she is convicted. She may feel unprepared to make the decisions that must be made in the coming days. Fortunately, an experienced criminal defense attorney can help guide her through the process.
