Doña Ana County (KTSM) — A mother in Doña Ana County is behind bars for allegedly driving drunk with her two young children in the car.
Sheriff's deputies say 23-year-old Blanca Borrego ran a red light at around 2 a.m. on Saturday.
When they pulled her over, deputies say her car smelled like alcohol, then they noticed her 5-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter weren't in car seats or wearing seatbelts.
Borrego failed a breath test and was charged with DWI, two counts of child abuse/neglect, as well as having an open container of alcohol in the car, among several other charges.
