MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP, abc24.com) — A woman arrested on a DUI charge in Memphis also faces child endangerment charges for seven children in her car.
34-year-old Quindell Edgerton was arrested Thursday afternoon on Mud Island after a witness called police.
An officer said Edgerton's speech was slurred and she smelled of alcohol. She claimed to have had "a couple of beers," but her blood-alcohol content measured more than twice the legal limit at 0.175.
Police said five children in the back seat ranged in age from about 5-15. The ages of two others in the front seat weren't noted in the police report.
Edgerton was jailed on charges of DUI, Child Endangerment and Public Intoxication. She has since been released on a $2,000 bond.
