Peekskill mom arrested for allegedly driving drunk with kids in car

Police have arrested a Peekskill mother on suspicion of driving drunk with young children in the car after she crashed on the Bear Mountain State Parkway in Cortlandt Manor.

Kansas Gilleo, 30, had her daughter, 13, and her two friends, aged 13 and 15, in the car with her at the time of the accident. No one suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident.

Gilleo is being held on $15,000 bail. If convicted of the two felony drunken driving charges, she could face up to eight years in prison.

Her ex-husband says that she is currently on probation stemming from a grand larceny charge.
