Not a very good role model

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - August 3, 2010

Police say they have charged both a mother and her son with drunken driving.

Police say they spotted a speeding Chevy El Camino followed closely by a Mazda.

A local paper reports police pulled over both at a convenience store.

Officers say mom, Genevieve Hurst Alvarado, smelled heavily of alcohol and said she had been drinking.

She was in the Mazda.

Her son, 24-year-old Benjamin Forster, was driving the El Camino.

Police say he fell over backwards after being stopped.

Officers add both mother and son failed their field sobriety tests.
