A Sound Beach woman has been charged with drunken driving after a witness saw her placing two children in and then taking them out of her car while illegally parked in a handicapped zone Saturday night in Miller Place, Suffolk County police said.

Holly Olsen, 24, was charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child passenger 15 years old or younger — a violation of Leandra’s Law — two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

According to a police report, a witness called police after she noticed what she called an apparently intoxicated woman taking children in and out of her car while it was illegally parked in a handicapped zone in front of a Stop & Shop.

Officers stopped Olsen’s Lincoln Navigator on Carlisle Road in Miller Place at 10:26 p.m. and found Olsen had a 2-month-old and 2-year-old inside.

Information about Olsen’s relationship to the children was not immediately available.

Olsen’s bail was set at $50,000 bond, or $25,000 cash at her arraignment Sunday at First District Court in Central Islip. The court also issued a temporary order of protection, though no further details were immediately available.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for Friday.
