BIXBY – Police arrested a Jenks woman on complaints of driving under the influence and child endangerment after responding to a reported reckless driver on Thursday afternoon.
A Bixby patrol officer saw a white Chevrolet SUV that matched the description of a reported reckless driver near 151st Street and Memorial Drive around 4:15 p.m., documents show.
The SUV continued “at a high rate of speed in the center of both westbound lanes” of 151st Street near Sheridan Road, the arresting officer wrote.
The officer turned on his lights and sirens to stop the SUV, at which point the vehicle swerved to the right, struck a guardrail and continued driving, according to police records.
The driver – identified as Donna Jean Rogers, 62 – stopped near Harvard Avenue, according to her arrest report, and police found four children between the ages of 3 and 10 inside the SUV.
Police said Rogers, who reportedly smelled of alcohol, was unsteady on her feet and had red, watery eyes and slurred speech.
She was booked into the Tulsa Jail on a complaint of driving under the influence and four child endangerment complaints. She was released after posting bail on a $101,000 bond.
