(Newser) – A suspected drunk driver's 7-year-old son ratted her out to officers Monday night in Indiana, WTHR reports. The Randolph County Sheriff's Office says 25-year-old Audrey McColm nearly crashed head-on into an off-duty officer, who followed her and watched her nearly crash a few more times. An on-duty officer met McColm at a residence and asked if she had been drinking. According to the Star Press, McColm denied it, but her son—who had been in the car with her—chimed in: "Yes you have, Mom." The Sheriff's Office says McColm had a BAC of 0.237—nearly three times the legal limit—at the time of her arrest. WTHR reports she was uncooperative at the jail, allegedly asking officers to shoot her in the head, stripping naked, and refusing to put on the jail jumpsuit. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
