WATCH: Dashcam video shows foster mother’s DUI arrest with child in car


 

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution

AnGeorgia mother was arrested after driving drunk with a toddler in the car, police said.

Stacy Clubb, 45, was parked on the side of the road with flat tires when an officer approached her, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Alpharetta police spokesman Jason Muenzer said Clubb appeared intoxicated.

"How much alcohol did you have to drink today?" the officer asked Clubb in dashcam video.

At one point during the traffic stop, she was heard on video telling police she had to go home to let her dog out.

"Who is going to have to go potty?" the officer asked Clubb.

"My dog," Clubb replied.

"Well, he's going to have to wait because I need to make sure you are safe to drive," the officer said.

Clubb's 4-year-old foster son was in the car with her, Channel 2 reported. She told police she picked him up after attending a work party.

"I can't believe you're doing this with my son in the car," Clubb said to the officer.

Police charged Clubb with DUI and child endangerment.

Attorney George Stein is representing Clubb.

"It's safe to say she's accused and perhaps falsely accused," Stein told the news station.

Stein said state child welfare workers took the boy from her in light of the arrest.

"She believes she was not impaired to drive," Stein said. "It's obviously a high-stakes case for her because she's a foster mom and there's huge issues that come along with that and responsibilities as well."
