When a Pembroke Pines mother pulled up to her child’s elementary school Monday afternoon, the trip ended with her in the back seat of a police car on charges of driving under the influence.

Lisset Llauro, 39, was taken into custody at about 2:45 p.m. after she arrived at the parent’s pick-up line of Silver Lakes Elementary School, according to Miramar police, drove through lane barriers in front of the school and almost rear-ended another vehicle.

She was stopped by an officer on the scene and when Officer Philip Lanoue arrived he began to question her.

“She stated that she did in fact run over the lane barriers but didn’t know why,” said Lanoue in the police report. Llauro has three school-age children.

Llauro claimed that she was not under the influence of alcohol or medication but, according to Lanoue, was stumbling and appeared to be inebriated when she exited her vehicle at the school at 2300 SW 173rd Ave.

The officer gave Llauro multiple field sobriety tests, which she failed, and she refused to give a breath or urine sample.

When she was placed in the police car, Lanoue said she was giving off an odor that smelled like alcohol.

Police said the child’s father eventually came and picked the child up from school after the incident.

Llauro appeared in court on Tuesday and was released under the condition she undergo alcohol testing.
