Jackson, TN, mom arrested for DUI in Georgia, kids in car

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) -- Police say a 35-year-old Tennessee woman is accused of driving drunk through Cobb County at more than 90 mph with her four children in the car.

Marietta police say Maria Michelle Baylor of Jackson, Tenn., faces DUI and child endangerment charges.

Baylor remains in jail on $35,000 bond.

Police say Baylor was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Impala southbound on Interstate 75 last week when she was spotted driving at high speed.

An arrest warrant says Baylor had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. It says she failed field sobriety tests and refused a breath test.

Police say that as she was being arrested, Baylor threatened a Marietta police officer, leading to an additional charge of terroristic threats.
