A 29-year-old Shirley woman was arrested late Sunday and charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated under Leandra's Law after police responding to a 911 call said officers found her drunk with her 3-year-old in the car.
Heidi Zacher was arrested by officers responding to a 911 call reporting a possible drunken driver on Lombardi Drive in Shirley Sunday at 11:45 p.m., Suffolk County police said.
Officers initiated a traffic stop near Pine Tree Drive.
Police said those officers determined Zacher was intoxicated and charged her with aggravated DWI under Leandra's Law, as well as with DWI, endangering the welfare of a child and first-degree unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
Arraignment details were not immediately available.
The incident occurred in October 2009. Police said the girls were attending a sleepover and said the driver, the mother of one of Leandra's friends, was driving drunk.
A month later Leandra's Law was enacted, making it a felony, even on first offense, to drive drunk with a minor under age 16 in the vehicle.
