BUNNELL, Florida. – A Florida woman was arrested Saturday night for allegedly drunk driving with a 2-year-old who was not wearing a seat belt, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.
Aisha Cameron was arrested and charged with two counts of child neglect without serious bodily harm and one count of drunk driving, MPs said. The 31-year-old was taken to Perry Hall Sheriff’s Detention Center, where she was released on $3,000 bail.
On Saturday night, MPs responded to multiple calls about a reckless driver near US-1 entering Bunnell. The witness was able to approach Cameron’s car at a red light, where they noticed a woman with a child in the back seat who appeared to be ill.
Flagler County Sheriff’s Office officials were able to intercept Cameron’s car near SR-100 and CR-205 after it slowed for no apparent reason, officials said.
When Cameron stopped, the front right wheel of her car slid into a ditch, causing the rear right wheel to rise several feet off the ground. According to deputies, the car became unstable, rocking back and forth near a deep drainage channel.
Cameron and the child were immediately removed from the car for their safety by a deputy.
The DUI investigation found that Cameron showed signs of a violation. She also allegedly smelled strongly of alcohol and failed several sobriety tests. Deputies said her blood alcohol level was 0.15, nearly double the legal limit.
Deputies took the 2-year-old to a local community center until a family member arrived to take care of him. This was reported in the Department of Children and Family Affairs.
