Lorain, OH (The Weekly Vice) - Mary Torres, a 24-year-old Ohio woman was jailed Wednesday after she was allegedly caught driving drunk with three unrestrained children in the car.
Serious pouting soon followed.
According to Lorain police, Torres first caught an officer's attention when she blew through a stop sign at about 1:30 in the morning.
After the officer pulled Torres' vehicle over, she reportedly tried to drive off again before the officer finally convinced her to leave the vehicle in "park". That's when the officer noticed three small children in the car - all without seat belt.
He also noticed a strong odor of alcohol emanating from the vehicle.
Investigators say the officer asked for Torres' driver's license, which was answered with an incoherent mumbling that the officer was unable to ascertain.
When the officer asked Torres' to step out of the vehicle, she reportedly stumbled several times before admitting that she had downed four shots of "E&J" about a half hour earlier.
The officer then attempted to conduct a field sobriety test on Torres, but abandoned the effort after Torres nearly bit the pavement during the first exercise. She was instead taken to the police station where her blood alcohol level was tested to be more than three times the legal limit.
It also was discovered that her license was suspended due to a prior conviction for driving under the influence.
Torres was booked into jail on three counts of endangering children, three counts of child restraints required, driving while suspended, failure to stop at a stop sign and DUI.
