Officer Arrests Woman on DUI Charge on Rte. 95 March 18
Tasha Schleicher was charged Wednesday with two counts of felony aggravated drunken driving, two counts of misdemeanor drunken driving, no vehicle insurance, driving while license revoked for drunken driving, and transportation of open alcohol while driving.
Weitzel said Riverside police were able to locate the 15 year old in Cleveland, Indiana, and that police there have arranged for him to be returned to Minnesota. The results found her statement was fictitious, Weitzel said. Officers also observed an open bottle of Crown Royal liquor in the front passenger seat.
It takes a lot to be labeled one of the worst drunk drivers in America, but it seems Schleicher has reached the threshold required, given the police response and given that she had been arrested as many times as she has kids. As officers searched the area, witnesses at the gas station stated she was the only one in the vehicle and they had not seen any children present.
The mother of 11 - who was arrested for driving under the influence at least six other times - was taken into custody when she refused to take a sobriety test, according to WLS-TV.
During another DUI arrest, she told the officer who pulled her over that she had her children with her, even though she was alone in the vehicle, according to the paper. Officers are working with CPS in Minnesota to find that child.
She had told police she was looking for her children, but witnesses told officers that Schleicher was by herself at the gas station, the station reported. She lied about her name, date of birthdate, Social Security number, and also lied about being pregnant, police said.
While in custody, according to police, Schleicher said she was pregnant and having a miscarriage.
"This is one of the worst impaired driving arrests our agency has ever made", said Weitzel in a press release.
Schleicher's previous scrapes with the law include drunken driving arrests in Kentucky, Wisconsin, Indiana, California, Oregon and Minnesota.
Schleicher is also wanted on warrants in Nebraska, for violating a court order, and in Idaho and OR, for failing to appear in court for drunken driving arrests, according to police. When she was arrested in a state, she would just not show up in court unless she was held in custody. "That's one of the reasons for so many outstanding warrants", Riverside Police Chief Thomas Weitzel told local media. An off-duty police sergeant said he saw Schleicher's auto drift into the median and side-swipe the barrier for roughly 200 feet before she exited the highway, pulled over, and began breastfeeding her baby, the newspaper reported.
