Kentucky woman, Sunita Jairam arrested after drunk driving with teen son at double drinking limit to teach son a lesson.
A Kentucky mother has been arrested after allegedly driving drunk with her son in the car as some sort of ‘lesson,’ – though it was not clear exactly what the supposed lesson was, police said.
Sunita Jairam, 48, was arrested circa 12:51 a.m, Sunday morning with the woman telling cops she ‘drank a bunch of beer and got in her car to drive to teach her son a lesson,’ according to the arrest citation obtained by the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Jairam also claimed to have driven a 2014 BMW X1 at 150 mph while her son was in the car.
Jairam smelled of alcohol and was slurring her speech, WKYT reported. During questioning the mom admitted having been drinking all day.
The woman’s son told investigators he tried to get out of the car several times because of his mother’s driving, but was unable because the door was locked.
Jairam’ blood-alcohol level was .161, twice the legal limit, according to booking records. The 48-year-old was taken to the Fayette County Detention Center and is scheduled for an initial court appearance Monday.
Records show Jairam previously charged with public intoxication and speeding.
