Arizona Mom Arrested on DUI Charges After Allegedly Running Over Her Teenage Daughter

One 15-year-old Arizona girl is accusing her mother of running her over while driving drunk.

Jennifer Coppedge, 38, was arrested earlier this week on charges of reckless child abuse and driving under the influence, according to the Associated Press. Authorities say the Wickenburg woman is also being held for possible endangerment and aggravated DUI with an interlock device charges.

Wickenburg police did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. A lawyer for Coppedge could not be immediately identified.

The teenaged daughter reportedly told police that her mother picked her up on Saturday, noticeably drunk. Not wanting to be in the vehicle, the girl said she jumped out of the car when Coppedge allegedly ran over the girl’s leg, leaving her with injuries, including cuts, according to the AP. Two of Coppedge’s other children were also in the car at the time — a son, 12, and a 2-year-old daughter.
