Mother of Three Arrested for DUI w/ Jell-O Shots In Her Pocket

Posted by William Kirk, Partner | Jun 07, 2014 | 0 Comments

A Minnesota woman was arrested for a DUI and Jell-O may play a key role in the prosecutor's case, reports After police spotted Cathy Sanchez erratically driving, they pulled her over and observed the woman's slurred words and strong stench of alcohol. However, the most pointed piece of evidence against Sanchez may be what the police found in the woman's pockets -- three Jell-O shots.

Following the Jell-O-ey find, the police had Sanchez undergo several sobriety tests. To no surprise, the woman failed the tests and was charged with a DUI. The police then ran a background check and discovered that Sanchez had five prior drunk driving convictions and had her licensed suspended because she was considered a "threat to public safety."

The woman did not help herself during the most recent arrest as she reportedly gave the police a fake name. Perhaps she didn't want her three children to find out the circumstances of her arrest.
