GASTONIA, N.C. - A Gastonia woman accused of impaired driving while she was pregnant, went into labor during her court appearance.

Mandy Bradley left court on a stretcher Monday.

It appeared her water broke while she was waiting for her case to be called.

Officers said she had slurred speech and droopy eyes during a traffic stop in September.

They charged her with DWI and possession of heroin.

She still has another pending DWI.
