Denise Oher was charged by the police in Memphis with DUI, disorderly conduct, and driving on a suspended license.
Reports say officers could smell a foul odor coming from Oher as she sat in the driver’s seat of a vehicle with a bottle of vodka nearby.
She was booked into Jail East and was being held on $7,500 bail.
Denise Oher was depicted in the film “The Blind Side,” as the crack addicted mother of Michael Oher, the oversized and neglected son that was basically left to his own devices.
Michael Oher was later adopted by the Tuohy family, and went on to play college football at the University of Mississippi.
Michael was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
