Driver Arrested On Second Child Endangerment Offense

By Beth Milligan | Nov. 28, 2018

A 40-year-old woman from Boon, Michigan was arrested in Leelanau County Monday on a second child endangerment offense.

Two separate callers alerted 911 at 2:10pm about a Jeep driving erratically on Bugai Road headed north. A Leelanau County Sheriff's Office deputy located the vehicle heading north on South Lake Leelanau Drive near Maple Valley Road in Bingham Township. The deputy witnessed the Jeep swerve to the right, almost leaving the roadway.

The deputy conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle. The deputy saw "immediate signs" the driver was under the influence of alcohol, according to the Sheriff's Office, because the woman was unable to follow basic instructions. The woman's nine-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son were also in the vehicle. The woman was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, driving on a suspended driver's license, and second offense child endangerment. The woman, whose blood alcohol level tested at two-and-a-half times the legal driving limit, was taken to Leelanau County Jail.
