ROSWELL, Ga. - Roswell police said a teenager helped them stop an accused drunk driver -- in this case her own mother.
 

Police said that mother was driving on Old Scott Road last weekend with several teens in her car.
 
They said her own daughter noticed something wasn't right, so she called the cops.
 
When Roswell police responded to the location, they already had a good idea about what was going on inside Deborah Miller's car.
 
"She noticed her mom was weaving all over the road,” Officer Lisa Holland said. “She asked her mom several times to pull over.  Her friends were in the car."
 
So when Miller didn't pull over, Holland said the woman's 16-year-old daughter picked up the phone and called to report her.
 
"We have to commend the daughter for calling and reporting this,” Holland said.   "She was concerned with her safety and the safety of her mom."
 
Miller's now facing DUI charges.
 
She wasn't home when Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik stopped by Monday for a comment.
 
Drivers we spoke to had plenty to say.
 
"It's unfortunate it takes a 16-year-old with more maturity, but the fact of the matter is the 16-year-old did the right thing," one driver said.
