LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - After a traffic stop, a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper arrested a 38-year-old Lufkin woman for allegedly driving drink with a 3-year-old boy in the car with her Thursday night.
Tracy Funderburk is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a state-jail felony charge of driving while intoxicated with a child under the age of 15 in the car. No bail has been set at this time.
According to Trooper David Hendry, a spokesman for the DPS, Funderburk's 2006 Nissan Altima was pulled over on FM 1336 for traffic violations. When the trooper made contact with Funderburk, he noticed signs that she may be intoxicated.
After the trooper conducted a partial field sobriety test on Funderburk, he arrested her and charged with DWI with a child under the age of 15. The 3-year-old boy was released into the custody of a family member.
The trooper transported Funderburk to a Lufkin hospital to have a blood sample drawn before he took her to the Angelina County Jail.
