This is Jamie Hicks, a.k.a. the "DUI Mom." The Long Island mother was arrested Sunday for driving with a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit after her 10-year-old child called 911 from the backseat of their out-of-control car.

Authorities say Jamie Hicks was driving along Interstate 84 near the Town of Southeast, New York on Sunday, July 25th when her 10-year-old called the police to complain about their mother. The kid told the 911 operator their 49-year-old mom was speaking incorrectly and driving out-of-control.

Police intercepted her vehicle and arrested her for driving drunk. She also gets the additional felony charge under "Leandra's Law" for driving drunk with a passenger under the age of 15. Hicks was released after posting bail and will be in court next month.

Family life w/booze, that's the shit all right. I wouldn't want to be that kid, not for the next eight years or so anyway. At her age I would not have dared to do that to my father. Of course we didn't have cell phones back in 1966. But I wouldn't have turned him in to the cops even after the time I was twelve and he drunk-drove a left turn across traffic and we got t-boned by a cab and I got knocked out and spent the next five days in the hospital. Because I'd have been sure he'd be even angrier at me than usual; I'd have been afraid he would kill me. And that's not a metaphor, I mean literally "kill," possibly with that .38 caliber handgun he was so fond of waving around when he was pissed off and drunk, which was most of the time.
