Authorities allege Krystin L. Williams, 21, was drunk when she was pulled over just after midnight on July 23 with her 2-year-old son not in a child restraint seat in the passenger seat of her car. She faces one count each of DWI, child endangerment and driving while revoked, according to court documents.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper pulled over a 2002 Saturn Ion that night after noticing the tail lights were not on. The vehicle was traveling northbound on Interstate 29 in southern Platte County at the time.

Williams identified herself at the time of the stop and acknowledged her son was the passenger.
According to court documents, the trooper observed Williams to have slurred speech with an odor of alcohol on her breath. She was taken into custody after failing field sobriety tests and a preliminary test indicated the presence of alcohol.

Nearly 2½ hours after the initial stop, a chemical blood test revealed Williams’ blood-alcohol level to be .099 percent.
