Foster mom accused of driving drunk with child inside car

Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik obtained dash cam video of Alpharetta police conducting a field sobriety test on 45-year-old Stacy Clubb.

Police said this started after an officer wrapped up a traffic stop and looked out his window to find a woman parked on the side of the road with flat tires.


Police spokesman Jason Muenzer said Clubb also appeared very drunk.

“How much alcohol did you have to drink today?” the officer asked Clubb in dashcam video.

At one point during the traffic stop, she was heard on video telling police she had to go home to let her dog out.

“Who is going to have to go potty?,” the officer asked Clubb.

"My dog,” Clubb replied.

"Well, he's going to have to wait because I need to make sure you are safe to drive,” the officer said.

Making matters worse, police said Clubb's 4-year-old foster son was in the car with her.

She told police she picked him up after attending a work party.

"I can't believe you're doing this with my son in the car,” Clubb said to the officer.

Police charged Clubb with DUI and child endangerment.

Attorney George Stein is representing Clubb.

"It's safe to say she's accused and perhaps falsely accused,” Stein said.

Stein said state child welfare workers took the child from her in light of the arrest.

"She believes she was not impaired to drive,” Stein said. “It's obviously a high-stakes case for her because she's a foster mom and there's huge issues that come along with that and responsibilities as well.”
