Cops in Medina got reports of a driver weaving erratically Monday morning.

It was early, when buses and cars pack the roads on the way to work and school.

School is where Alexa Guzman was trying to go — she had her two kids in the car.

She didn't quite get there, however, and is now facing an avalanche of charges stemming for the early-morning bender she embarked on before getting behind the wheel.

When cops finally caught up to Guzman, she could barely speak, probably because she had stuffed gum in her mouth in an attempt to disguise the reeking stench of alcohol on her breath.

See, Guzman was more than a little drunk. Cops say she had a blood alcohol level of over 0.3%.

According to 19 Action News, the 35-year-old Mother of the Year is not only charged with OVI and child endangering, but faces separate trouble after cops learned she allegedly ran over a bunch of lawns in a neighborhood and crashed into a mailbox in her mad, drunken dash to get her kids to school and get back to the bottle of whatever she had for breakfast.

Booze, it's what's for breakfast.

Here's one lady who's probably pissed the Muni Lot doesn't open until 7 a.m. for Browns games this year.
