Nicole Malich, a deputy district attorney in Clark County, Nevada, allegedly drove drunk with a child in the car
A Las Vegas prosecutor is charged with drunk driving with a sleeping child in the car, a report said.
Nicole Malich, a deputy district attorney in Clark County, Nevada, reportedly reeked of booze, had “thick and slurred” speech and “slow” movements after being arrested around 2:30 a.m. on July 18 for driving erratically. 8newsnow.com reported.
The Nevada Highway Patrol trooper stopped Malich on US 95 near Tropicana because she was unable to stay on the runway, the I-Team reported.
She allegedly told police she had a beer two hours before she was arrested, but reportedly failed a field sobriety test and was subsequently arrested, according to the news channel.
Malich was charged with drink-driving, endangering children and traffic violations, and Child Protective Services took the child.
The Clark County District Attorney’s Office said in an emailed statement to DailyMail.com that the case has been referred to the Nevada Attorney General’s Office for review.
“As for Ms Malich’s status with our office, that is a confidential personnel matter and we will not comment on that at this time,” the prosecutor’s office said.
Malich earns more than $100,000, according to Transparent Nevada.
