GASTONIA — Authorities in Gastonia have charged a woman with driving while impaired involving her child for the second time in a month.
The Gaston Gazette reports police said 36-year-old Elizabeth Cher Drawdy was involved in a wreck with her 8-year-old child in the car on Thursday. An officer said she was unsteady on her feet and smelled of alcohol.
Drawdy is jailed on charges of DWI, misdemeanor child abuse, failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident and driving with a revoked license. She's being held under $10,000 bond and it's not known if she has an attorney.
In August, Drawdy was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor after police say she and another mother went out drinking and left their children and other youngsters home alone.
