AUSTIN, Minn. (WCCO) — A Minnesota mother has been charged after allegedly being drunk when she picked up her son from school.

Police arrested 40-year-old Gina Mason at Woodson Elementary School in Austin on Wednesday.

Officers received a tip that she was on her way to the school to pick up her son. The tip caller said Mason was drunk.

Police say she failed a field sobriety test, and a preliminary breath test indicated she was over the legal limit to drive.

Authorities say third-degree driving while intoxicated charges against Mason are pending.
