Police: Drunk Bellefontaine Woman Tries to Pick Daughter Up from School
BELLEFONTAINE (Ken Hines) -- A mother is receiving counseling after attempting to pick her daughter up from school while drunk, according to the woman's boyfriend.
Police arrested Noel Cayot for OVI after her blood alcohol level was measured at .236 -- nearly three times the legal limit -- outside her daughter's Bellefontaine middle school on Monday.
A school employee reported Cayot to a 911 dispatcher after the 42-year-old mother was observed in a car with a Bud Light behind her back while waiting to pick her daughter up from volleyball practice.
"I have a lady here at Ben Logan, um, Middle School. She's here to pick up her daughter from volleyball, and she's drunk," the school worker told the dispatcher. "Her daughter is going to be coming out pretty soon, and we don't want her driving her daughter home."
Officers soon arrived at the school, where Cayot admitted only to drinking a 16-ounce beer before driving, according to a police report.
Cayot pleaded not guilty to a charge of OVI on Tuesday. She is currently receiving treatment for alcoholism, according to her boyfriend.
"She knows she has a problem," he said. "She needs to get help, and she's seeking help."
Cayot is scheduled to face trial on the OVI charge in late October.
