DWI suspect hits light pole with child in car

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Another suspected drunk driver made it easy for law enforcement to find her.

Police say Michelle Brooks slammed into a light pole around 8:00 Saturday morning in southwest Albuquerque and officers say her small child was in the car too.

And it could have been much worse.

According to a criminal complaint Brooks crossed over into oncoming traffic first then swerved and hit that pole.

The complaint says Brooks admitted to drinking vodka earlier and told officers she had too much to drink.

She now faces child abuse charges.
