A New Mexico grandmother was caught on camera trying to flirt her way out of a DUI arrest.

That may seem funny and cute, but police say the woman's 6-year-old grandson was in the car with her.

Dashcam footage shows 57-year-old Brenda Colwell trying to charm the police officer who pulled her over outside the State Fair.

She tries to distract him, but he stays focused.

When she realizes she can't flirt her way out of this trouble, Colwell turns on him.

"At first I thought you were cute," Colwell tells the officer.

"Thank you. I appreciate that," he replies.

"You're not," she snaps back.

Colwell was arrested and her grandson made it home safe and sound.
