PORTLAND, OR (KOIN/CNN) - An Oregon boy reported his mom to police for suspected drunk driving Saturday night.

30-year-old Nicole Norris was arrested for DUI after failing field sobriety tests.

She could face more charges.

Washington County deputies said Norris was headed home with her 11-year-old son when he called 911 about her erratic driving.

"He said his mom was drunk driving while he was in the back seat. He felt in danger enough that he needed to reach out to call us," Deputy Shannon Wilde said. "We had her walk a line, look at her feet and count her steps out loud."

Deputies said two other drivers called police to report Norris for erratic driving behavior too.

Officers said her blood content level was twice the legal limit.

No injuries were reported.
