A mother has been charged with DUI and endangering the welfare of a minor after reportedly driving drunk with her son in the vehicle.
48-year-old Sunita Jairam was arrested early Sunday at 12:51 a.m.
Jairam told police she “drank a bunch of beer and got in her car to drive to teach her son a lesson,” according to the arrest citation.
She also claimed to have driven at 150 mph while the child was in the car.
Jairam' blood-alcohol level was .161, twice the legal limit, according to booking records.
The son told police that he tried to get out of the car several times, but the door was locked.
Jairam was taken to the Fayette County Detention Center and is scheduled for an initial court appearance Monday.
