ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A state trooper arrested a Lufkin woman Wednesday night after he reported she drove drunk and wrecked into a fence with three child passengers in the car.
Elisabeth Ann Netherton, 25, is charged with state-jail felony driving while intoxicated with child passengers.
According to the DPS report, Netherton was driving a 1994 Lexus on Gilbert Road around 11:15 p.m. when she drove through a stop sign and into a property owner's fence. Nobody was injured.
The responding trooper said Netherton had a smell of alcohol on her breath and failed field-sobriety tests. He placed her under arrest and released three boys, aged 4, 3 and 19 months, to the custody of a relative.
Netherton is in the Angelina County Jail, where she is waiting for her bail to be set.
