Phoenix police arrested a woman they say was driving under the influence with a child in her lap late Monday night. 

Police say they arrested 26-year-old Simone Rae Bejarano near 7th Street and Northern Avenue after she reportedly hit a curb and slammed into a wall outside a QuikTrip in the vicinity. 

Bejarano was driving under the influence while holding her child when she hit the curb, police say. 

Bejarano reportedly refused a sobriety test, but police say she showed signs of impairment. They also found an open bottle of alcohol in the car. 

Bejarano was arrested for aggravated DUI and child abuse. 

Her next court date is November 19.
