One day, my 13-yr-old stepdaughter texted us that her mom was drunk. It was mom's parenting time - mother just lost custody & is a recovering alcoholic but has parenting time. Mom took both daughters to doctor appt & hit a car in the lot per stepdaughter. My husband went there, observed damage and called the police. The police checked the damage & then stopped the mother (with stepdaughter & her sister in car) as she tried to leave. They administered all the field tests, then arrested her. Did breath test at station. .274 result. Mom's attorney has filed motion to suppress. Is that typical/expected? Did Police have enough cause to stop her? Charges were Endangering Children, OVI (regular and high tier), Reasonable Control. What are her chances of getting out of any/all charges?
