An Irving woman has been arrested on a felony DWI charge while she had a baby in the vehicle, New York State Police said.
According to a news release, troopers arrested Nancy Jimerson, 34, at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday night.
Troopers responded to a 9-1-1 call for a disabled vehicle on the shoulder of the 190, north of exit 23 in Niagara Falls, NY.
The vehicle’s operator, Jimerson, said she had run out of gas, according to New York State Police.
Troopers said that Jimerson was “under the influence of alcohol and operated the vehicle with an eighteen-month old child in the back seat of the vehicle without a proper child safety seat.”
Jimerson summitted to a breath test with a .16% BAC after she was arrested, state police said.
The vehicle Jimerson was driving belonged to a friend without an interlock device, which Jimerson is court ordered to have due to a previous DWI arrest, according to the news release.
She was transported to the Niagara Falls City Jail and held on $750 bail.
The child was turned over to family member and in good health.
