PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – State Police say a Providence woman was driving drunk with two children in the back seat of the car when she was pulled over Sunday morning.
According to the State Police, Seekonk, Mass., police broadcast a report of a suspected drunk driver heading into Rhode Island on Route 195 West at about 3 a.m. Sunday.
An East Providence cruiser caught up to the vehicle and stopped it in Providence; State Troopers arrived and had reason to believe that the driver, 29 year-old Carol Salgado of General Street, was intoxicated.
Troopers said that Salgado failed field sobriety tests and was arrested.
Her sons, three and five years old, were in the back seat of the car and were not properly restrained.
Salgado was charged with DUI and refusal to submit to a chemical test, and was cited for both not wearing her own seat belt or having her children belted.
Salgado was arraigned by a Justice of the Peace and released to a family member, and the two boys were also released to a family member.
