DPS: Mom on Muscle Relaxants Jailed for Driving with Kids

A mother of two spent Tuesday morning in Brazos County jail, accused of driving with her children while on muscle relaxants.

According to authorities, Stacy Leystra was in her car with a shattered windshield on the side of FM 1687. Her husband and their nine- and seven-year-old children were inside.

The 32-year-old admitted to a trooper that she had driven after taking Soma shortly after she had filled a prescription at a pharmacy. Authorities also say Leystra admitted she shouldn't be driving.

Leystra could be charged with a State Jail Felony. She also has an outstanding warrant out of Hearne for burglary of a habitation.
