A 35-year-old Innisfil woman is facing impaired driving charges after she was caught driving nearly three times over the legal limit with a young child in the car.

South Simcoe police responded to a driving complaint at around 9 p.m. on Monday.

When an officer arrived on the scene, he saw a vehicle driving erratically, so he pulled the vehicle over. Police say that based on the officer’s observations, the driver was placed under arrest for impaired driving.

The woman was taken to the South Division police station, where tests revealed she had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit.
