ST. AUGUSTINE, FL — Investigators say a woman accused of drunk driving had a case of beer buckled up safely, and a one year old girl sitting in the backseat without a seatbelt or car seat.
On Super Bowl Sunday, a deputy saw a car drive through a red light and swerve back and forth over the center lane on U.S. 1 South.
The deputy stopped the car.
Investigators say the woman, who identified herself as Tina Williams, smelled of alcohol.
According to the report, Williams told the deputy she never had a license and was running out of gas.
The deputy saw a case of Busch beer in the front seat with a seat belt around it, and a baby girl in the backseat.
When asked why the girl wasn’t restrained, Williams reportedly told the officer, “I don’t know.”
Williams told the deputy she had a few drinks. Authorities say she staggered when she got out of her car.
The deputy arrested her for DUI after she failed a field sobriety test.
Authorities also found two silver metal pipes in her purse.
Williams faces charges of driving under the influence, child endangerment, driving without a valid license running a red light and not having a seatbelt or child restraint.
