Fort Payne police say a mother is facing multiple charges after being pulled over for DUI while heading to pick up her child at a middle school.

Police say Mary Elizabeth Stevenson, 37, was charged with DUI and endangering the welfare of a child after a school resource officer received a report that the mother was possibly intoxicated Thursday afternoon.

Stevenson, who already had a child in the vehicle when she arrived at the school, was arrested and transported to the Fort Payne Police Department. Police say she received the child endangerment charge because of the child who was already in the vehicle.

Her bond is set at $2,000.
