48-year-old Jamie S. Hicks was all over the streets of New York in her 1995 Buick LeSabre Sunday evening. She was drunker than a skunk. But that didn’t stop her from getting behind the wheel. In fact, not only did she get behind the wheel, she took her 13-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son along for the joyride as well.
Thankfully, Hicks has a smart daughter who immediately informed the police of the situation.
The car was on I-84 near the Connecticut border when the daughter called 911, saying her mother was “weaving in and out of traffic,” authorities said. The daughter told the officers that her mother was intoxicated, police said. Hicks failed field sobriety tests and was taken in for processing, according to police, who said her blood alcohol content was 0.18 percent, more than twice the legal limit.
Deputy commissioner of the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services has stated that the 911 tape will not be released.
