A mother has been charged after deputies said she drove drunk with her child in the car.

Tracy Burnett, 41, has been charged with driving under the influence and child endangerment after a traffic stop Dec. 7., according to an incident report from the Spartanburg police.

According to the report, Burnett was slurring her speech and when deputies asked her how much she had to drink she replied that she "had way too much."

Deputies said during the traffic stop they saw Burnett's 3-year-old daughter in a car seat in the vehicle.

Burnett was then taken to the Spartanburg detention center after refusing a breath test, the report said.

According to the report, the child's grandmother was called and took custody of the child.
