Police say a woman charged with driving while intoxicated had an unrestrained 4-month-old infant in the back seat when she was pulled over by authorities in Northeast Austin on Tuesday.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Lakeshia Bryson, 33, was pulled over at Johnny Morris Road and FM 969 just before 10 p.m. after her mother called police to report that she was doing drugs in her vehicle.
The affidavit said Bryson’s mother told police Bryson was supposed to pick her up from work that night but never showed up.
“Bryson’s mother said that she then called all of the recent numbers from Bryson’s cell phone history and was told that Bryson was in the Lakeside area ‘getting high,’ ” the document said.
The mother tracked down Bryson and followed her until police pulled her over.
According to the affidavit, Bryson’s pants were covered in what appeared to be loose tobacco when she stepped out of her vehicle, and a 4-month-old boy was lying unrestrained in a car seat in the back seat.
“While sitting in the parking lot speaking with officers, Bryson urinated on herself twice,” the affidavit said.
The document also said that Bryson appeared to be confused during a walk and turn test, and was unable to follow simple instructions.
