Dec. 09, 2013
LUDLOW, Mass. (AP) — Police are crediting customers of a Ludlow gas station with helping get an allegedly drunken driver off the road.
Police say 33-year-old Amy Lagasse had her 2-year-old child in her car when she was arrested Saturday night at a Sunoco station on Center Street.
She was charged with second offense drunken driving, reckless endangerment of a child and driving on a suspended license.
Police tell The Republican (http://bit.ly/1e0rD5S ) that several customers saw her either falling asleep or acting disoriented in her car.
One couple who tried to help her called police and took away her keys so she could not drive away. A third person asked the clerk to call police.
The child was handed over to state child welfare authorities.
