Officers noted the driver, Jacqueline McGarry, smelled strongly of alcohol. Inside the vehicle, her 3-year-old child was in the back seat and an open bottle of Tito’s Vodka was on the center console. She was unable to perform a field sobriety test so she was transported to the Sango Emergency Room to get a blood test.

Jacqueline McGarry was arrested and charged with DUI, child abuse, and open container violation. Her bond was set at $4,500.
