ST. PETERS, Mo. (KSDK) - A Ballwin mother was arrested earlier this month for driving drunk with her 6-year-old daughter in the vehicle.

Rachel Wilcox's vehicle was seen swerving near the intersection of Mid Rivers Mall Drive and Cottleville Parkway. Witnesses reported the vehicle to the St. Peters Police Department.

Police located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop after observing the driver's erratic behavior.

During the stop the St. Peters officer found the child in the backseat of the car and notified the Division of Family Services.

When officers attempted to arrest Wilcox, she spit on one of the officers and later struck another.

Wilcox, 27, was charged Thursday with driving while intoxicated.
