BOYNTON BEACH, FL (KAUZ) -

A Florida woman is facing multiple charges after police responded to reports of a driver swerving all over the road.

31-year-old Brandy Lerma was spotted by a tow truck driver swerving all over the road and he called 911. Police say she nearly hit four cars and appeared to be under the influence.

After being stopped, it was discovered her 3-year-old child was in the backseat of the vehicle, unrestrained.

Lerma registered a .200 and a .187 on two different breathalyzer tests administered by officers. She told police she took Percocet, Xanax and drank two fireballs before getting behind the wheel.

She was charged with driving under the influence and child endangerment and is out on bond.
