A Mesquite woman is arrested by Dona Ana Sheriffs deputies for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol with two of her children in the back seat of her car.
Blanca Borrego, 23, was stopped for a traffic violation Saturday at 2 a.m. near the intersection of Anthony Drive and Landers Road. After Borrego was stopped deputies smelled alcohol in the vehicle and noticed that Borregos 5-year-old son unrestrained and her 2-year-old daughter also in the back seat not properly restrained.
Borrego failed a breathalyzer test, and was charged with a DWI and two counts of child abuse/neglect, failure to stop at a red light, making an improper turn and having an open container. Borrego was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center where she is being held on a $10,000 bond.
