Arizona mother forgets child on car, charged with DUI

Posted by Unknown | Mar 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

A young mother in Arizona is facing aggravated DUI charges after she allegedly forgot that her newborn child was still on top of her car when she drove home. The child fell off of the car, but did not sustain any injuries.

Phoenix police were notified of a car seat containing a child in the middle of the road. The 5-week-old is now in the custody of Child Protective Services. The child's 19-year-old mother was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, and child endangerment.

The woman admitted that she was under the influence of alcohol and drugs at the time of the incident. She did not notice that her son was missing until she returned home without him. As she was retracing her steps, she ran into the police, who were investigating the incident.

Please contact the DUI lawyers of the Cowan, Kirk & Gaston Law Firm by calling 866-822-1230 if you or someone you know has been charged with driving under the influence.
