Posted: Updated:

A woman was arrested for DUI and child endangerment after she was caught drinking and driving with children in the vehicle, according to Tulsa Police.

Melanie Richardson, 39, was arrested around 10:30 p.m. Monday evening, after a caller stated she jumped a curb and hit a street sign near N. Xanthus Ave.

The vehicle continued north on the road and stopped a block away from the wreck, when two children jumped from the vehicle because they were scared, police said.

Richardson told officers she had been drinking since 4 p.m. and failed a field sobriety test. She tested .18 blood alcohol content on a breath test.

Richardson was booked on charges of DUI and child endangerment with bonds totaling $26,000.
