A 39-year-old Suttons Bay woman was arrested over the weekend for drunk driving and child endangerment.

A Leelanau County Sheriff's Office deputy driving south on Center Highway near East Lakeview Hills Road at 7:53pm Saturday noticed a Chrysler van pulled over on the shoulder with its hazard lights on and a door left open. The deputy stopped and spoke to the vehicle occupants, and determined the driver had been consuming alcohol. The woman's five-year-old daughter was also in the van.

The deputy arrested the 39-year-old Suttons Bay woman for child endangerment and operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI). She was taken to Leelanau County Jail. The woman's daughter was transported to Suttons Bay and turned over to the care of family members.
