Posted at 12:24 PM, May 23, 2017

Police say a Queen Creek mom had a blood alcohol content over four times the legal limit when she was involved in an accident after getting her kids from school.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office reports that on May 18 a woman was driving a car when she struck a tree outside Jack Barnes Elementary School near Queen Creek and Crismon roads.

School staff informed MCSO that two children under 12-years-old were uninjured when they were removed from the car just after it struck the tree.

MCSO says 34-year-old Gail Elizabeth Anderson, was driving on a revoked license from a prior DUI conviction when she picked her children up from the school. 

In this case, Anderson's alleged B.A.C. level was .385, which is over four times the legal limit.

Anderson was arrested for extreme DUI, driving on a revoked license and other related offenses.
