Phillip Phillips' Mother: Arrested for DUI

Maybe she just wants to get Home.

Sheryl Phillips, the mother of last year's American Idol champion, was arrested yesterday on charges of DUI.

The incident took place, according to TMZ insiders, when Albany, Georgia officers pulled over Mrs. Phillips because her van was swerving through traffic.

Sheryl then failed to complete a field sobriety test and was taken into custody.

Sources also confirm that Phillip's parents split last week, which is no excuse for getting behind the wheel of a car inebriated, of course.

The singer himself has a less-than-ideal relationship with his mom and dad. Last year, the family pawn shop went out of business - and he refused to help.
