MCSO: Woman drove drunk with 3 kids, hit 2 cows

KINGMAN, AZ - A woman was arrested Friday night after allegedly driving under the influence with her three children inside her car, then striking two cows on the roadway.

Mohave County Sheriff's officers arrested Tori Dawn McKinney, 29, after they received a call about her dark-colored truck.

Officers found the vehicle at a Kingman convenience store with McKinney's three children -- ages 6, 7, and 9 -- inside.

After the officer noticed damage to the truck, the children explained that their mother had hit two cows on Stockton Hill Road.

McKinney came out of the convenience store, pointed at the truck and said, "Cows."

After admitting to officers that she was drinking two beers earlier that night, McKinney submitted to a field sobriety test. She was taken into custody with a blood alcohol level of .243 percent, according to officials.

Her children were transported to a local hospital and later released to another family member.

McKinney faces multiple felony counts, including aggravated DUI and driving under a suspended license.

Sheriff's officials said McKinney was driving with a driver license suspended out of Nevada in 2013.
