Hillview Police arrest pregnant woman for DUI
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A pregnant woman is accused of driving under the influence of a narcotic with her 16-month-old daughter in the car.
According to an arrest report, the incident took place on Tuesday, March 11, shortly after 9 p.m., near the intersection of Mud Lane and Smith Lane in Louisville. Police say they were called to that location after a witness saw a vehicle strike a guardrail and almost hit other vehicles head-on.
Police say that vehicle was a grey 2001 Toyota, driven by 24-year-old Loren W. Taylor.
Officers say they followed Taylor to Balleycastle Court, in a nearby subdivision. When they stopped her, police say they saw Taylor in the driver seat, along with her 16-month-old daughter in the rear passenger seat.
Taylor appeared to be under the influence of some sort of drug, according to the arrest report. Police say she tested negative for alcohol, but admitted that she had taken Subutex, a narcotic.
Taylor was 6-1/2 months pregnant at the time, police say.
She was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, endangering the welfare of a minor, wanton endangerment and failure to notify the Department of Transportation of an address change.
