New York mother looking for her kids refused a Breathalyzer test

Many New York parents may have faced the quick scare of losing a child for a split second. Children can run off in an instant, no matter how attentive the parents are. Thankfully, many of the children are found after just a short time of parents searching. One mother, however, has found herself in legal trouble after allegedly searching for her children. The end result was a DWI charge after she allegedly refused a Breathalyzer test.

The New York mother allegedly went searching for her children after she was unable to locate them. She assumed they were at the public library and went there to attempt to retrieve her children. Not long after her arrival to the library, someone called the authorities, and things began to go from bad to worse.

The woman allegedly tried to leave the library after realizing her children were not there. While doing so, it is said that she ran into the library building and then left. The authorities say that the woman soon returned, only to be allegedly found intoxicated.

The authorities claim they took the mother home to assist her in locating her children. The children were found at a neighbor's house, but this wasn't the end for the mother. She was arrested after authorities say she refused a Breathalyzer test. In addition to the refusal of the test, she was charged with DWI and speeding.

It is unfortunate for this New York mother that such incidences happened while she was simultaneously looking for her children. It is likely that she may be scared of the unknown, but she doesn't have to be. It may be in her best interest to go into the situation with assistance in addition to knowledge from someone who has experience with others who have refused a Breathalyzer test.
