South Carolina woman arrested for DUI with kids in car

Chester County, South Carolina, sheriff's deputies say they arrested a woman on DUI charges. Allegedly, the 34-year-old woman had two children in her car at the time of the arrest. The incident occurred on a recent Thursday, and the woman was charged with several crimes including open container violation, child endangerment, DUI and driving without a valid license.

According to deputies, the arrest took place not long after midnight while they were performing a safety checkpoint. The woman stopped her car as she was asked, but she encountered difficulty while trying to lower her window. Officers say that they detected the odor of alcohol emanating from her car, her eyes appeared glossy, and she was slurring her speech. Two children were also in the car, officers say.

Allegedly, the woman told authorities that she drank one beer previously that night. However, when police asked her if she had any beer in the car, she handed over an opened beer can. Police say that the woman showed numerous signs of impairment while they performed a field sobriety test. The woman was subsequently arrested and booked at the jailhouse in Chester County.

It is important to note that this woman -- even though she has been charged with DUI and various other criminal offenses -- will be viewed as innocent until she is proven otherwise in a court of law. Those accused of a crime in South Carolina, will have the opportunity to defend themselves against the charges. An experienced attorney can protect his or her clients' rights while creating a strong defense.
