A Great Falls woman was cited for felony drunken driving after her frightened 9-year-old daughter jumped out of the car, ran into a convenience store and told a cashier her mother was extremely drunk.
The cashier called police. The daughter pointed out her mother's car parked nearby and officers arrested 47-year-old Chari L. Littledog after she refused to perform field sobriety tests.
Court records say preliminary tests showed her blood-alcohol level was 0.267, more than three times the legal limit. Police say Littledog acknowledged drinking an 18-pack of beer. The girl said her mom struck another vehicle in downtown Great Falls.
Littledog's bail was set at $5,000. Because she has three previous DUI convictions, she is required to wear a scram bracelet if she posts bond.
