Police: Oklahoma woman arrested for DUI with child in the backseat of car
GUTHRIE, Okla. – A Guthrie woman was taken into custody after allegedly driving under the influence with a child in the car.
On Oct. 11, officers with the Guthrie Police Department arrested 62-year-old Cheryl Jean Goodman on charges of DUI and child endangerment.
Authorities say they were called to a parking lot after witnesses said an intoxicated driver was trying to drive away in a black Nissan SUV.
Witnesses told police they saw Goodman fall as she was walking with a little girl, and immediately ran to help. When they reached her, they realized that she was “staggering” and her speech was slurred, the arrest report claims.
When officers arrived, they spotted a Nissan parked across two parking spaces.
Officials say Goodman was very unsteady on her feet and “nearly fell down,” according to the arrest report.
While speaking with police, Goodman allegedly admitted to having a “couple at Legends.” She also allegedly admitted to being on her way to pick up a child from a nearby elementary school.
Police say a child was in the backseat of the car at the time of her arrest.
