OKLAHOMA CITY – A mother was arrested on Thanksgiving for driving drunk with her kids in the car.

Police arrested 30-year-old Amanda Tarver after a good Samaritan called in to report a drunk driver near Reno and Villa.

The caller told 911 operators the woman had hit a curb, ran a red light, and was swerving all over the road.

When police caught up to Tarver, they found three kids in the car.

Officers say Tarver smelled liked alcohol and could barely walk.

She blew a .16 on a brethalyzer test.

Police took her into custody and called a relative to pick up the kids.
