Drunk driver kept 3-year-old in lap during 6-mile chase, deputies say

FRESNO, Calif. -- A woman arrested for driving drunk after a chase on a California highway had a 3-year-old sitting on her lap the whole time, according to sheriff's deputies.

A deputy tried to pull over 27-year-old Raquel Gonzalez at about 2 a.m. Saturday, but she sped up instead and didn't stop until she got to a home in southeast Fresno, about six miles away.

She got out of the car holding her 3-year-old niece and deputies said her car didn't have any child safety seats.

The deputy arrested Gonzalez for DUI and child endangerment, and CPS took the girl.
