She was pulled over Thursday night for driving without her headlights illuminated.
A Lutz woman faces a DUI charge after authorities say she was driving impaired with two young children in the car Thursday night.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Leah Ann Deyoung, 37, was observed driving without her headlights on in the area of Oak Grove Boulevard and Rolling View Court in Lutz at about 9 p.m. on March 7.
When the deputy made contact with Deyoung, her eyes were bloodshot and glassy and she had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath, an arrest report stated.
Deyoung "denied drinking and stated with slurred speech she rinsed her mouth with Listerine," according to the report. She then performed poorly on a field sobriety test, and twice refused to take a breath test.
Deyoung of 24336 Summer Nights Court in Lutz was arrested and charged with DUI. The children in the car were picked up by a family member, the report stated.
She was released from the Land O' Lakes jail early Friday morning.
