WALNUT HILLS (FOX19) - A mother was hurt and her daughter is under arrest after the mother trying to prevent her daughter from driving drunk early Friday, Cincinnati police officials said.

The mother was in the car with her daughter and both were intoxicated when she ordered her to pull over about 1:30 a.m. on Victory Parkway near William Howard Taft Road, said Lt. John Rees, the night chief.

The mother got out of the vehicle and tried to remove her daughter from the driver's seat,  he said.

The daughter accidentally threw the car into reverse, and the mother fell down. She was not run over, despite initial emergency communication reports to the contrary, Rees said.

The mother was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where she is expected to be treated and released, he said.

Officers said they found alcohol in the back of the car.    

The driver, Dionysus Bronaugh, 29, of Madisonville was charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, Rees said. Court records show she also was charged with obstructing official business, driving without a license and reckless operation of a motor vehicle.

She refused to cooperate with officers during her arrest, records state.

She was booked into the Hamilton County jail by 3 a.m.
