GLENDALE, Ariz. -

A 39-year-old Scottsdale woman is facing aggravated DUI charges. Police say she drove drunk with her baby in the car.

Angela Lynne Erickson was booked into jail on charges of aggravated DUI-passenger under 15 and child abuse.

DPS pulled her over Monday evening because she was allegedly driving 30 miles per hour on a freeway with a 65 mph speed limit.

A number of motorists called 911 to report she was driving at varying speeds and nearly struck other vehicles in the heavy rush hour traffic.

A DPS sergeant stopped Erickson on the 101 near the 75th Ave exit. He observed an 18-month-old child in the backseat.

Erickson was allegedly exhibiting slurred speech, and had vomit and fecal matter stains on her clothes. DPS says she was talking with her eyes closed and leaning on her car for support.

She failed a field sobriety test and refused to do a blood draw, according to court documents. The officer obtained a warrant allowing a phlebotomist to take blood, but Erickson was combative.

DPS says she had to be restrained during the blood draw.

Results are not back yet.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
