Incident # 24-091-02119

Foothills Detachment deputies were dispatched to a welfare check in the Tehaleh neighborhood. According to the 911 caller, a 33-year-old woman was intoxicated and had just driven away from a residence with her 3-year-old child in the vehicle. While driving to the location, a deputy passed the suspect’s vehicle and he turned around to make a traffic stop. The deputy immediately noticed signs of impairment, and the suspect had trouble doing simple tasks like providing her license and proof of insurance. She was arrested for DUI and her son was picked up by a family member. She apparently forgot that her son had already been picked up and asked deputies several times where her son was. Deputies noticed an empty beer can in the car. The suspect was transported to the hospital for a blood draw before being booked into jail for DUI, reckless endangerment, obstructing, and contempt of court.
