Reedsburg police say a woman was driving drunk Wednesday night with a loaded firearm and her young daughter in the vehicle.
Brittany Lee Robertson, 27, of Baraboo, was arrested for drunken driving with a minor passenger, carrying a handgun while intoxicated and violating a license restriction, according to a news release from the Reedsburg Police Department.
Police stopped Robertson around 11:30 p.m. after she allegedly made an improper left turn. “In speaking with the driver … officers detected she had been drinking,” the release said, adding that Robertson’s 8-year-old daughter was riding with her.
Officers allegedly noticed she had an ignition interlock device due to previous drunken driving convictions that had not been installed. They also reported finding a loaded handgun in her possession.
“She was issued and released to a responsible party,” the release said.
