TAMPA — Deputies arrested a Brandon woman late Sunday after they said she brought her two school-aged sons with her in the car to chase down her husband.
Deandra Jerne Harrison-Hamilton, 28, of 557 Kensington Lake Circle in Brandon, was charged with child neglect, giving false information to a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
Harrison-Hamilton was chasing down her husband, 30-year-old Rosson Dwayne Hamilton, who was driving with his girlfriend, when she told one of her sons to call 911 and tell the dispatcher that his father was driving drunk. Her sons are 7 and 9; it is unclear which son called 911.
Deputies arrived on scene at 7850 N 56 St. in Tampa and found Harrison-Hamilton banging on the hood of her husband's car. She also had her children stand in front and in back of the car so he would not flee. Deputies said her husband was not intoxicated.
Harrison-Hamilton is being held in the Orient Road Jail Monday in lieu of $2,750 bond.
