Woman arrested and charged with DUI and child endangerment
On Monday evening, a 22 year old woman named Ashley Harper in Upstate Anderson County, South Carolina, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol after driving her car into a tree. The charges were made more severe due to the fact that she was carrying her two small children in the vehicle (one of which was a baby), while driving drunk, and thankfully they remained belted in their child safety seats, according to the Anderson County Detention Center and first responders at the scene. Ashley Harper was booked around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning, and it is unknown at this time what Field Sobriety Test, if any, was used to determine her BAC (blood alcohol content). According to the first responders to the scene, one of the children had a minor injury along with Harper who was injured by the airbag and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The state Department of Social Services also responded, and Harper is being held at the Anderson County Detention Center with bond set at $1442.
