37-year-old Carrie L. Bernard was pulled over and arrested after driving drunk with her 8-year-old steering the car, Inside Edition reports. 

Officers from the Milwaukee County Sherriff's office reportedly pulled Bernard over and said she was visibly impaired and failed sobriety tests. When they pulled her over, her young son was on her lap as she was attempting to pull onto a highway. 

Her son was reportedly crying, saying he "didn't want to go to jail."

This is Bernard's third DUI charge, and this time she was charged with a DUI with a minor under the age of 16 in the vehicle as well as other charges. 

The child has reportedly been handed over to Child Protective Services. 

We hope the little one is ok after such a traumatizing event.
