Police say, last week 28-year-old Heather Maiers was caught speeding near Oceana Blvd. They say she was going 50 miles-per-hour in a 35 miles-per-hour zone. However, officers had a hunch that Maiers wasn't just guilty for speeding.
Virginia Beach Police spokesperson, Adam Bernstein says Maiers was given a breathalyzer test. After failing, he says Maiers still insisted she was fine. "It was a case where she felt like she was okay to drive," Bernstein says.
When officers tried to arrest her, police say she started screaming at them.
Bernstein says, "Extremely belligerent. Cursing at him especially when he began to lecture her about the dangers of drinking and driving while having her baby in the vehicle. Then she just laid into him."
NewsChannel 3 wanted to her Maiers' side of the story but someone at the house said the family was on vacation.
Maiers faces a list of charges including her second DUI charge, speeding, and felony child neglect.

The Talbot County Humane Society is searching for the suspects who allegedly threw eight to ten cats from a moving car.

Margery Tannenbaum of Hauppauge, N.Y., is charged with aggravated harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly posting the child's name and phone number in an online ad targeting sex-seeking men. Prosecutors say Tannenbaum created the ad after the girl argued with the social worker's daughter at a Smithtown, N.Y., elementary school, according to New York's WCBS-TV.
Tannenbaum, 40, denied the allegations when she was arrested last spring. Her lawyer, Tad Scharfenberg, told WCBS that his client still maintains that she is innocent.
"She's a good mother, she's never been in any trouble before, she takes good care of her kids," he told WCBS. "I'm defending her to the fullest, she maintains her innocence."
Tannenbaum is accused of listing the girl's name and phone number in conjunction with the e-mail address, email@example.com. The girl's mother got a call from a man who asked for the child by name. When the woman told the caller she was the girl's mom, he responded: "Oh, hot lady lives with foxy momma!"
"I told him that the hot lady you are referring to is 9-years-old," she told the station.
The state has been asked to review Tannenbaum's social work license, and parents at the school attended by both girls are hoping for a swift resolution.
One change has already taken place: Tannenbaum was the class mother for both girls last year, and she has since been replaced.
