A local mother is in custody after police said she raced down Interstate 95 while drunk with her family in tow.

Investigators said Patricia Siciliano's own son had to call police to rescue the family.

According to police, the boy told officers that his mother was drunk and out of control at the time.

"She was doing a 100 (mph) down I-95 and I told her I didn't want to die. And then she wouldn't get out of the car so I had to pull it over. I had to pull like her, like, move her over and she started hitting me. I have bites, cuts and punches all over my face," the boy said.

The teen told police the family was heading home from Destination Daytona, near Ormond Beach, where they had attended a Blue Oyster Cult concert.

Police said the car eventually ran out of gas and the family ended up on the side of the road.

The teen can be heard crying during the 911 call he made.

Dispatchers said the teen told them Siciliano started punching his father in the face.

Right before a deputy arrived, the boy can be heard saying, "She's not a very smart alcoholic -- at all."

Officials said Siciliano proved him right by wrestling with deputies and even spitting on them.

Siciliano is charged with domestic battery, child abuse without great harm, resisting arrest without violence and three counts of battery on a law enforcement officer.
