Woman Says She Drove Drunk To Teach Her Son A Lesson

A Kentucky woman charged with drunken driving told police she did it create a teachable moment. 48-year-old Sunita Jairam was arrested early Sunday on charges including endangering the welfare of a minor.

Her arrest citation says she told police she "drank a bunch of beer" and drove at 150 mph to teach her son a lesson, but police don’t know what that lesson was. The son told police he tried to get out of the BMW several times, but the door was locked.

Booking records show Jairam's blood alcohol content was 0.161, twice the legal limit. She has previously charged with public intoxication and speeding.
