The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. Saturday when an officer with the Traffic Enforcement Unit noticed a vehicle swerving on Cherry Road. The officer followed the vehicle for a short distance before initiating a stop at the intersection of Cherry Road and John Street.

Once the vehicle pulled over, the officer could smell alcohol coming from the driver, Katarsha Anderson, 34, who was driving with three children. The children were six, eight, and thirteen years old, the report states.

The officer called for assistance, and Anderson was given a field sobriety test.
