A Maricopa mother was arrested Sept. 27 on suspicion of intoxicated driving after a collision on Smith-Enke Road. Her son was reportedly in the vehicle at the time.

Jennifer Hardy-Alarcon is accused of four counts of driving under the influence and failure to control a vehicle.

According the Maricopa Police Report, a Ford sedan driven by Hardy-Alarcon ran into the rear bumper of a Honda SUV stopped at a red light at Province Way. The incident occurred around 8:30 p.m.

Responding officers described Hardy-Alarcon as displaying “obvious signs of extreme intoxication” while failing a sobriety test. Breath samples reportedly registered at 0.223 and 0.236. She was arrested but released to a responsible party.

MPD is recommending two charges of aggravated DUI as well as extreme DUI, DUI to the slightest degree and failure to control a vehicle to avoid a collision. Her vehicle was towed to impound.
