A drunk mum hauled her eight-year-old daughter along behind her SUV after the small child tried to stop her drink driving, say cops.
According to police, Erin Garcia (44), climbed into the car with her little girl following to raise concerns that she had drunk too much to drive.
The little girl “grabbed the passenger’s door handle and told Garcia to stop”, according to the Placentia Police Department, reports the Daily Mail.
But undeterred, Garcia “looked at the child and proceeded to drive away”, the cops added.
After dragging her daughter along the ground for 300 feet, a passerby intervened to stop the chaos.
Cops who responded to the incident, on Garcia’s mother’s house on Orchid Drive in Laguna Niguel, arrived at 11:37pm.
They found Garcia’s daughter with “abrasions to her legs and feet”, police say.
Along with another victim, she was brought to the hospital by her grandma.
As cops tried to arrest Garcia, they found her “hiding in some bushes in the backyard”.
When they attempted to take her to a cell, she resisted and kicked the officers.
In video footage obtained by ABC7, Garcia is shown wearing a floral shirt and cut up t-shirt before she’s put down on a patch of grass and handcuffed.
A cop can be heard saying: “Ma’am, I can’t feel my thumb.”
The clip also shows Garcia stumbling towards a police SUV with her head hanging.
Orange County Jail filed three charges against her mother. She is facing assault with a fatal weapon, child abuse, and battery on a police officer.
