A mother and daughter are both in some trouble after a run in with Sarnia police early Saturday morning.

A city officer spotted a pick-up travelling north on East St. with no tail lights around 2:25am and followed the vehicle, which stopped briefly at a red light and then drove through it.

The officer initiated a traffic stop near Nelson St. where it’s alleged the vehicle mounted the curb and parked in the front yard of a residence, which turned out to be the drivers.

As she attempted to walk away, the officer told her to stop and it’s alleged she threw her keys at a female passenger in the pick-up.

The driver told the officer she would cooperate, however her the 19-year-old female passenger confronted the officer, yelled at him and physically attempted to block the officer from dealing with her mother.

She was arrested for obstructing police and placed in custody.

The 57-year-old mother was finally arrested for impaired driving and breath samples indicated she was over the legal limit.
