GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (WCCO) – A Plymouth, Minn. woman was arrested after being caught allegedly driving while intoxicated with two children in the back seat of her vehicle.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County, 32-year-old Der Vue Moua was pulled over early Monday morning while driving along Interstate 394 west of Highway 100.

A State Trooper observed Moua driving erratically, dipping back and forth between lanes and eventually driving along the shoulder of the road.

The trooper pulled Moua over and noted the strong smell of alcohol, as well as slurring in her speech.

There were two minors in the back of the vehicle who were neither in car seats nor were they wearing seat belts.

At first, she told the trooper she never drank, but later admitted to having three Corona beers at a birthday party, according to the complaint.

After she allegedly faked a few attempts at the breath test, the trooper got a reading of 0.138 BAC.

She told the trooper she wanted to speak with an attorney, but after being provided with a phone, she made only personal calls, according to the complaint.

Moua has been charged with two counts of third-degree driving while impaired.
