An Oakdale woman was recently sentenced for driving drunk with her kids in the car during a June 2 incident.
Antionette Hobbs, 27, had a yearlong prison sentenced stayed and was given three years of probation stemming from her arrest in Willernie.
According to the criminal complaint:
Washington County deputies were dispatched on a report of a suspected drunk driver who had driven up onto a home’s yard.
The caller told authorities a woman was driving the SUV, which also had a man and two small children inside, and the vehicle at one point headed into oncoming traffic.
A deputy found the SUV parked and saw a woman, later identified as Hobbs, walking away from the driver’s side of the vehicle.
She showed signs of intoxication, became agitated and initially refused to follow commands to stop.
Deputies advised her of her rights twice and she said she didn’t understand and began swearing at officers.
The two children in the vehicle were aged 6 and 4 at the time. The man who was with Hobbs told police she was driving and they had been at a bar.
During a search of her purse, police found bindles that field-tested positive for heroin.
Hobbs was also charged with felony drug possession and a gross misdemeanor of refusing to submit a chemical test.
