Mother uses daughter's breath to circumvent DUI car device

A 36-year-old Pennsylvania woman faces multiple charges after law enforcement accused the woman of using her daughter's breath to blow into a DUI prevention device, which is meant to stop drunk drivers from using a vehicle. 

According to the Harrisburg Patriot-News , Angela Daywalt, of Waynesboro, was charged with drunken driving, child endangerment, corruption of minors and traffic offenses. The charges stem from a crash on Feb. 13. 

Eyewitnesses told law enforcement that the woman encouraged her 8-year-old daughter to blow into the DUI device, which measures the driver's blood alcohol level. 

Moments later, Daywalt reportedly crashed her car with her daughter inside. Daywalt reportedly fled the scene and went home.
