During this time, Brantley’s 1-year-old son was in the vehicle, according to a police report.

Police spotted Brantley driving on Stewart Drive and said she took off in reverse at a high rate of speed. The vehicle then drove over a curb and nearly hit a tree before returning to the roadway.

Police said Brantley eventually stopped.

Her son, who was not secured in a car seat, was crying, according to police.

Police said Brantley smelled of alcohol and was yelling and screaming.

She’s charged with domestic violence, driving while under the influence, reckless operation, child restraint and endangering children.

Monday, she pleaded not guilty to the charges. She’s scheduled to appear in court again at 10:15 a.m. March 1.
