RACINE COUNTY — A Kenosha woman was arrested Sunday after she was reportedly caught driving drunk with a child in her vehicle.
Samanda E. Day, 31, of Kenosha, was arrested by the Wisconsin State Patrol and is facing her second OWI charge, with a penalty enhancement for having a passenger under the age of 16 in the vehicle, according to a Wisconsin Department of Transportation news release.
At 7:36 p.m. Sunday, a trooper with the State Patrol Waukesha Post stopped a southbound 2017 Chevrolet passenger van on Interstate 94 south of Highway 20 for a driving infraction.
Day was given field sobriety testing, which State Patrol officials indicated that Day was allegedly operating under the influence.
A 12-year-old child was also found in the vehicle’s passenger seat. The release did not indicate the relationship between Day and the child.
Day was taken to a local hospital for a legal blood draw and released to a responsible party. The child was released to the custody of family members.
