PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman is in custody for allegedly driving drunk, leaving the scene of an accident and endangering her three children.

Phoenix police say 35-year-old Brianna Railing was arrested Sunday night near the Loop 101 in Scottsdale.

The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/RkNkla) reports that when police arrived, Railing's 13-year-old daughter told officers her mother left the scene with her 7-year-old and 9-year-old siblings by accepting a ride from a friend.

Police say they called Railing at her home in Phoenix and told her to return to the scene.

Railing allegedly told police she had been drinking before she got into the vehicle that night.

Police say Railing failed a preliminary breath test with a blood-alcohol level of .157%. That's well above the state's legal limit of .08%.
