idliketoknow-I agree, and if she endangered her child, she needs to work to get her back or mandatory parenting/addiction treatment.

Whenver they pull someone over, they always want to know if they have ever been arrested before and for what. It would be easier to claim if the person has previous history. Thats all I am saying. Not saying this is case. I have no reason to beleive the cop is not truthful. Just wanting to keep things clean. Been 3 yrs since my friends son was paralized on 170 by drunk driver, the drunk girl got house arrest and pregnant while on house arrest. guess she found new hobby. Not one cent has been paid for paralized young man. Girls dad big attorney. Very sad

If she's already had a DUI previously, then she knows full well how serious it is and what the consequences of a 2nd are. DUI 2nd is guaranteed jail time. There is no getting around that. She will have her child taken from her and rightfully so.

No child should be placed in danger...absolutely!

But...I agree, I no longer trust our police force to give the citizen the benefit of doubt. I believe that if you are pulled over or otherwise engaged by an officer...odds are that you are going to jail. It seems that law enforcement has become not only a capitalistic venture, but adversarial to the general citizenry. I mean this with all respect, because I realize that there are legitimate situational needs, but from what I personally have experience, and what I hear from fellow citizens, the line has been crossed.

There should be a policy in place so that the accused can have a blood test at a local hospital. With this alcohol level, this woman may loose custody of her child-and rightfully so if the level is correct. I know of a parent that took their teen into the police station requesting a breathilizer when the kid drove home drunk and denied, WPD treated the parent awful and said "we don't do that". The parent took the kid to the local ER for testing. Yet I have witnessed WPD pull a girl out of a booth at Perkins and take her outside and breatalize her. Concerned parents who want to intervene before things escalate are treated poorly. No wonder so many parents turn the other cheek.
