Officials: Children in car during Wisconsin drunken driving offense
LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (AP) -- A northwestern Wisconsin woman is being charged with her ninth drunken driving offense after authorities say she was found unresponsive with her foot on the brake of an SUV with two little girls in back.
A criminal complaint says 44-year-old Lisa Marie Badciong of Chippewa Falls was found in her SUV June 2 outside a fast-food restaurant in Lake Hallie. The complaint says a Chippewa Fire District member reached in to put the vehicle in park and shut off the engine.
According to the complaint, Badciong couldn't speak or stand, and a half-empty bottle of vodka was found on the passenger seat.
Court records say Badciong has posted an $800 cash bond, and made an initial court appearance Tuesday.
A message seeking comment was sent to an attorney listed as representing Badciong.
