A Black River Falls woman authorities suspect was high on drugs drove Saturday and struck several vehicles while a 3-year-old was in her backseat, according to the Wisconsin State Patrol.

Tari Lynn Pettibone, 50, struck three cars in the parking lot of the Ho-Chunk Nation Casino before she was arrested, the agency stated. No one was injured.

Troopers determined she was driving under the influence of a drug and arrested her for sixth-offense driving under the influence of an illegal narcotic.

The Wisconsin State Patrol is investigating.
