McLeod said Talbott got out of the car and approached his cruiser when he stopped. He alleged he saw signs that she was intoxicated almost immediately.
“I asked her if she was OK, as she started talking to me,” McLeod says in the report. “I could right away smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person. Her movement were slow and lethargic as she started stating she pulled to the side to talk to her ex-husband.”
Talbott failed a sobriety test, McLeod said. After arresting her, the trooper went to the car and found an 8-year-old and the 1-year-old inside. The 1-year-old was in a car seat, but wasn’t buckled in properly, McLeod said.
