ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Diboll Police Department arrested a 24-year-old Diboll woman Wednesday morning for allegedly driving drunk with a 5-year-old boy in the car with her.

Gabrielle Michelle Duncan 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. Her bail has been set at $2,000.

According to Trooper David Hendry, a Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman, DPS troopers assisted with the arrest at approximately 10:45 a.m. The Diboll PD officers stopped a motorist who had been driving erratically on U.S. Highway 59 South.

The DPS troopers performed a field sobriety test on Duncan, and she was arrested after she allegedly did poorly on it. After Duncan was transported to Lufkin's Memorial Hospital, she was taken to the Angelina County Jail.

The 5-year-old boy was placed in a family member's custody.
