Authorities: Mom Arrested For Driving Drunk With 1-Year-Old In Car

CREATED May 15, 2014

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. - A Vanleer mom allegedly tried to escape custody after authorities arrested her for driving drunk with her 1-year old in the backseat.

A Montgomery County deputy said he responded to a call about a reckless driver on Monday, and 22-year-old Amber Caudle flagged him down.

Witnesses said she had run another car off the road, and then crashed into a ditch. Her daughter was also in the car, but unhurt.

The deputy said Caudle had trouble speaking, and tried to pull away when handcuffed. Once inside the cruiser, Caudle apparently tried to escape again by climbing through the partition window.

She was charged with DUI, resisting arrest, and reckless endangerment. Her bond was set at $105,000.
