Gwinnett Police said a woman was driving drunk with her two children in the backseat when she was arrested during the weekend.

She almost hit a police car head-on and then later urinated in the street in front of the patrol car after she was asked to exit the car to be questioned, WSB-TV reported.

The children, ages 4 and 7, were not harmed.

Gwinnett County jail records say Rashandra Charuse Horsley, 29, of Lilburn was admitted June 21 at 3:44 a.m. and released at 4:05 a.m. on June 23.

She is charged with several offenses: DUI (more than 10 percent blood alcohol), DUI- child endangerment (two counts); reckless driving, improper lane change, disorderly conduct, failure to use safety restraint for child.

Police stopped the woman on River Drive in the Lilburn/Lawrenceville area after she almost swerved into a police patrol car.

The woman’s mother told WSB that police came to her home Sunday to tell her of the incident and ask that she pick up the children. Robin Horsley said she was thankful her daughter was stopped before hurting someone.

She was arrested on the 21st and bonded out on the 23rd. How do you get 21 minutes out of 2 days? Maybe it took her that long to sober up!

She's got a long row to hoe since she has two counts of child endangerment tacked onto it. Hopefully she will get a P.O. that will help her to not ever want to do it again. DUI in ga. has hopefully gotten more stringent.

For each child in the car, you get an additional DUI charge. She now has three just from this incident. 24 months probation, $1500 fine, 30 days community service, random alcohol testing, license tag forfeiture. Then, before you get you tags and license back, an ignition interlock must be installed.

Mr. B....and three strikes and you're out in Ga. I'm glad that Ga. has gotten stricter. Back in the 70's it was considered an 'accident". My mother was killed by a drunk driver and very little happened to him. While I hope that did it for him and he never drank again, my experience is that a slap on the hand only encourages some to continue on as they always have. What Ga. has in place will make her life miserable long enough to hopefully make her think before she ever does anything like that again. The accountability and disruption of your life is a great deterrent, and I'm all for that if it works.
