A Northern California mother arrested for drunken driving hit 100 mph in her SUV while trying to make her child’s birthday party.
The San Francisco Chronicle says 34-year-old Katherine Russell was behind the wheel of a Toyota 4Runner that sped past a California Highway Patrol officer in a U.S. Route 101 construction zone.
The SUV hit 100 mph by the time the CHP officer caught up with her Friday night in Rohnert Park, which is about 50 miles north of San Francisco in Sonoma County.
She told the officer she was late to her child’s birthday party.
The CHP says Russell’s blood-alcohol was more than three times the legal limit to drive.
She was booked for investigation of drunken driving, driving without a license and various traffic violations.
