Cops: Marietta mom charged with DUI after driving wrong way with baby in car

A Marietta mother faces a host of charges after getting pulled over for allegedly driving the wrong way with her 8-month-old son in the backseat. 

Martha Bosquez-Romo, 35, was stopped by a Cobb County deputy Monday night for driving on the wrong side of Bells Ferry Road without her headlights on, arrest warrants show.

She ended up “nose-to-nose” with the deputy’s cruiser after pulling over in the left lane, authorities said. 

Police said there was an open Corona bottle in the woman’s center console and that they noticed a “strong odor” of alcohol on her breath when she spoke. Another empty beer bottle was allegedly discovered in the rear of the Kia Soul. 

When asked for a driver’s license, Bosquez-Romo told the deputy she had no identification at all, according to her warrant. 

Police were unable to get through any roadside field sobriety tests because the woman reportedly became “hysterical upon removal from the vehicle.” The arresting deputy wrote that Bosquez-Romo could not stand on her own and had to be held upright. 

She was charged with driving under the influence, child endangerment, driving on the wrong side of the road, driving without a license, driving with an open container and driving without headlights, jail records show. 

Bosquez-Romo remains at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center, where she is being held for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 

It wasn’t immediately clear Saturday where the 8-month-old was taken after his mother’s arrest.
