An Aspen woman with a history of run-ins with police faces a felony charge of child abuse after officers pulled her vehicle over Sunday.
Another driver called authorities around 2:30 p.m. after witnessing Leslee Francis, 54, “weaving all over,” a police report says.
Her SUV also hit the median between the roundabout and the golf course, the reporting party told police.
The report says her adolescent son was in the vehicle at the time, leading to the felony. Francis is also charged with a protection-order violation and DUI for allegedly driving while under the influence of prescription medication.
She has been convicted for DUI, as well as felony trespassing in 2017 for breaking into a home and stealing prescription medication.
Contacted at her home Sunday, she told police that “the road is narrow. I hit the curb at Garmisch, as I often do,” the report says.
A breath test showed that Francis had had nothing to drink, but she failed voluntary roadside maneuvers, according to the report.
Found in a bottle during her arrest were two Tramadol pills, which is a painkiller, and two capsules of Effexor, an anti-depressant. She said she had prescriptions for both, and denied taking the drugs before driving.
Her bond was set at $2,500, and Francis is due in court May 21.
