Mother arrested at school for DUI
MIRAMAR, Fla. (WSVN) -- A South Florida mother has been arrested after police said she drove drunk to a local elementary school to pick up her child.
Miramar Police took 34-year-old Lisset Llauro into custody Monday afternoon at her child's school, Silver Lakes Elementary.
According to the police report, Llauro ran over some plastic lane dividers and nearly rear-ended the vehicle in front of her. According to witnesses, Llauro seemed disoriented, and they said, her speech was slurred.
"It's very concerning," said Tania Rues spokesperson for Miramar Police, "not only for the safety of her child but also the kids that are walking home, that are getting in and out of vehicles at that particular time. We were fortunate that a tragedy didn't happen."
Other parents picking up their children from school were completely stunned to hear of the incident. "I have my baby here. What if somebody else got hit?" a parent said.
"I think it's really, really bad for her to do that because that's not good," another concerned parent said.
Authorities conducted a roadside sobriety test, which Llauro failed. She was then transported to the Broward County Jail and charged with one count of DUI. "They say you smelled like alcohol, so I'm very concerned," Broward County Judge John Hurley said to Llauro in bond court.
Miramar Police said Llauro stumbled as she exited her vehicle, as well as failing that field sobriety test. Officials said she could not touch the tip of her nose with her finger.
Llauro also refused a breath and urine test. Llauro was released from jail Tuesday afternoon on her own recognizance. Hurley ordered her to undergo random drug and alcohol testing while out on bond. "Ma'am, if you come back with any alcohol in your system after this hearing, you'll be re-arrested," Hurley said.
"Oh, my God! Get the [expletive] away from me!" Llauro said as she walked out of the Broward County Jail to waiting news media. "What the [expletive] are you guys doing? I don't want to answer any [expletive] [expletive] questions! Leave me the [expletive]!"
Llauro is the mother to three children, ages 14, 12 and 6 years of age.
When asked if there was anything else she would like to say, Llauro responded, "Yeah, get the [expletive] away from me."
