Florida police arrested a pregnant mother for driving under the influence on March 11.
Angel Oliver, 28, reportedly consumed enough alcohol to be three times over the legal limit when she reared ended another car, authorities said.
Ocala Police said they registered Oliver’s blood alcohol content as .228 and .236 during two separate tests. Florida law allows drivers to have a blood alcohol content of .08 while operating a vehicle.
Police said Oliver also had her twin 18-month-old children in the back seat at the time of the crash. One of her children fell out of their seat onto the floor during the crash, and neither child had their seat beats fastened, reports claim.
When police arrived onto the scene, officers said they thought Oliver looked like she was not focused and could not concentrate.
At first police officers only noticed one of Oliver’s children. She later reached onto the floor of her Chevrolet SUV and pulled up her second child from the ground. Police at the scene said they saw an empty beer can inside Oliver’s car.
The children’s father later picked up the children after the police made contact with him, and he took them to a hospital.
In Florida, a person’s first driving under the influence conviction can lead to a $250 to $500 fine, 50 hours of community service, one year of probation and 180 days license revocation. If caught driving with a blood alcohol content higher than .08 with minors in the car, a person can spend up to nine months in prison.
Other expenses, like legal defense, fines and automotive insurance, can add up to around $8,000.
Police also called the Florida Department of Children and Families to check in on the children after the accident.
Oliver was released from Marion County Jail on March 12 on a $1,000 bail.
