ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Two Albuquerque moms stopped separately by police on Friday were unable to talk their way out of being arrested.
Officers said it was obvious Rachael Hernandez was impaired as she was driving her kid around impaired.
On Saturday she faced a judge on a child-abuse charge.
According to a criminal complaint police stopped Hernandez on Madison Street NE just off of Candelaria Road near San Mateo Boulevard.
After an officer said she was speeding and crossing into the wrong lane.
Police also said she had red, bloodshot and watery eyes.
But Hernandez told the officer she drank wine the night before and that the meds she was on at the time were antibiotics.
In court Saturday background investigators said it's Hernandez's third DWI arrest.
At last report she was still in jail on a $50,000 bond.
Police say Diane Rodriguez, 25, another mom accused of driving drunk thought up a story fast to try and avoid field sobriety tests.
Her story was that she was suffering from a brain injury.
Rodriguez faced a judge Saturday on a child abuse charge after police reported a breath alcohol test showed she was twice the legal limit.
Police stopped Rodriguez Friday in southeast Albuquerque.
A criminal complaint says Rodriguez was speeding and unable to maintain her lane.
The officer says Rodriguez reeked of alcohol, had watery eyes and started rambling on about a traumatic brain injury from past abusive relationships.
She told the officer the injuries were never reported but real. After she failed a breath alcohol test Rodriguez was arrested.
