Deputies say a woman was arrested for a DUI this week while on the way to pick up her son from a Boiling Springs football game.

According to officials with the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office, Tanya Vaughn Lux, 47, was arrested on Thursday at Paris Bridge and Flatwood Road.

Deputies said they pulled Lux over for driving left of center, and upon approaching her, noticed her speech was slurred. According to deputies, Lux was unable to keep still and said it was because she was on multiple prescription medications. They said she claimed not to have been drinking that evening.

Lux performed a field sobriety test and was unable to keep her balance, deputies stated. Deputies said the test determined Lux was too impaired to drive and she was arrested. 

Lux was booked into the Spartanburg County Detention Center and charged with DUI 1st degree.
