Florida Woman Drives Drunk Into Pond With Child In Vehicle

Authorities say a Florida woman drunkenly drove a truck with an 8-year-old in the passenger seat into a retention pond.

Michelle Lynn Snover, 33, was arrested on charges including driving under the influence and negligent child abuse without bodily harm. 

A Polk County Sheriff's Office report says Snover drove through the end of a cul-de-sac and into a retention pond.

Snover's 8-year-old passenger was reportedly able to get out of the truck and ask neighbors for help. 

According to the report, Snover initially told deputies she had taken a ride-sharing service to the pond. It also says she failed a sobriety test and her blood alcohol concentration was .13, which is above the legal limit of .08.
