Florida woman charged with DUI after chase goes through golf course

A Florida woman has been charged with driving under the influence and other crimes after leading a local police department on a chase that went through a golf course.

An Oklahoma mother of four is facing DUI charges after allegedly leaving her kids unsupervised at home while she went to work at a bar and drink, according to authorities. 

Perla Aguilar, 27, was booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center around 4:30 a.m. Sunday and was also facing charges of child neglect and driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to jail records.

Aguilar was slurring her words when she told Oklahoma City police that she “does this all the time” and has gotten into “trouble before for neglecting her children,” Gray News reported. 

Her four children – ages 5, 8 and 9 plus a 9-month-old baby – were in their mother’s house with no heat even though it was 35 degrees outside, according to the media outlet.
