Woman Arrested for OVI, with 4 Kids in Car
DAYTON -- A woman was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol with four children in her car.
Lavetta Bailey, 38, is facing OVI and child endangering charges.
"She was all over the place, she shouldn't have been on the road," said Eric Bowers, who witnesses Bailey's driving.
About 2 a.m. Tuesday, Bowers was driving home from work when he saw a woman swerving all over the road.
"She was going the wrong way on the road. Thank goodness there was no traffic at 2 o'clock in the morning," he said.
Bowers said he was able to ask the woman if she was lost. He said she answered with slurred speech and noticed she was driving with four children in the car.
"Obviously, she was very impaired, so I called police and distracted her until they got there," Bowers said.
Police arrived on scene at the corner of Olive Road and Little Richmond Road.
According to the police report, Bailey smelled of alcohol. Officers gave her a field sobriety test, which police said she failed.
Police talked to the children, ages 6, 8, 9 and 10, who told officers Bailey had just picked them up from a relative's apartment and they were headed home.
Officers say Bailey was on house arrest and wearing an ankle bracelet for getting arrested for an OVI in Kettering just three weeks ago.
Police said Bailey was driving with a suspended license and had an active warrant for her arrest from her Kettering OVI.
Police arrested Bailey Tuesday morning and took her to jail. A family member came and picked up the children.
Bowers said he was just glad the kids were able to get home safely. "The kids were my main concern. I'd hate to see anything bad happen to them."
