Angelina Diego charged with DUI and child neglect

PBSO: Woman drove on the sidewalk

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - A woman whom Palm Beach County sheriff's deputies say was spotted driving on the sidewalk on 6th Avenue South has been arrested on DUI and child neglect charges.

PBSO says that on Tuesday just after 9 p-m they received a call about a woman who was driving towards South Dixie Highway on the sidewalk.

The car driven by Angelina Diego was swerving between lines heading north on Dixie, the sheriff's office says.

It eventually stopped at 2nd Ave South, just west of Dixie.

A deputy says that when he approached the car there was a strong fragrance of freshly-sprayed perfume in the car. In the back seat were two small children in car seats.

Deputies say that they found 6 sixteen ounce empty beer cans inside the car, a half empty sixteen ounce beer can in the cup holder in the center console and two unopened cold beer cans in the front passenger floor.

Deputies arrested Diego and her children were turned over to a housemate, according to investigators.
