A Bryan woman is in the Brazos County Jail after she was arrested Sunday evening for driving while intoxicated with her 11-month-old child in the car.
Bryan Police responded to a disturbance in the 2300 block of Northside Sunday. Witnesses say the suspects involved in the disturbance left in a gray Chevy Blazer.
A Bryan PD Officer spotted and stopped the Blazer nearby. When he approached the car, he saw a child safety seat turned to one side with the seat facing the door. The child in the seat was screaming and crying. The officer smelled the strong odor of alcohol coming from the car.
28-year-old Clarissa Olivarez, who was behind the wheel, told police she hadn't had anything to drink. After being asked to get out of the car, she then told police that she had had two beers in 30 minutes.
Olivarez failed several field sobriety tests, according to the arrest record. She was arrested and taken to St. Joseph Regional Health System for a blood draw. While at St. Joe's, Olivarez told police she also took a Xanax earlier in the day before drinking.
She was taken to the Brazos County Jail and booked for Driving While Intoxicated with a Child Passenger. She was also cited for No Driver's License. She is being held under $5,000 bond.
