CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Kanawha County woman was arrested after running her car off the road with her two children inside.
Just after midnight, Deputy M.S. Sims went to Leatherwood Road in Clendenin after getting a call about a car in a ditch, according to Lt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department. When he got there, he allegedly found Jeanie Marie Woods, 27, of Clendenin, in a Jeep Cherokee with her two infant children. The vehicle was in the ditch and had a flat tire, Crosier said.
Crosier said Woods appeared drunk, so Sims gave her a field sobriety test, which she allegedly failed. She later took a Breathalyzer test and was fouind to have a blood alcohol level of almost .15 percent, nearly double the legal limit.
Woods was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, child endangerment and no proof of insurance. She was in the South Central Regional jail this morning in lieu of $25,000 bond.
In November, Woods was charged with malicious wounding after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend's son with a pair of scissors. That charge was later dismissed.
