A Suffolk County mom is facing charges of DWI, endangering the welfare of a child, violating an order of protection and resisting arrest after she was stopped by police with her child in the car.Authorities say 38-year-old Tanya Buccolo, of Melvill,e was arrested Thursday night after several motorists alerted police about an erratic driver.

Officers reportedly spotted Buccolo's car crossing over the double yellow line and drifting into oncoming traffic on Larkfield Road.

She was apparently not only intoxicated, but police say that her 8-year-old son was in the car.

Police add that an order of protection had been issued to keep Buccolo away from her son, since she was convicted of DWI in 2005.
