BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont woman has been arrested after police say she had a child drive her car while she was drunk.

Forty-two-year-old Jessica Mathiau of Brattleboro was arrested Saturday evening and charged with child endangerment. State police say a trooper noticed a car parked in the middle of the road, and upon speaking with the occupants, discovered that a child had been driving while Mathiau rode in the passenger seat.

Police say Mathiau was highly intoxicated, and during her travels, had activated the car’s emergency break numerous times in the middle of traffic.

A phone number for Mathiau could not be located Sunday. The child’s age was unavailable.
