MUSKEGON, Mich. — A 32-year-old mother was arrested in Muskegon Monday after officials say she was drunk driving with her four children in her vehicle.

According to Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Tim Maat, the woman was arrested just before 2 a.m. Monday in the area of Ada Avenue and Getty Street.

She is currently lodged in the Muskegon County Jail on a charge of drunk driving with an occupant less than 16 years of age.  Her name will be released after she is formally charged.

Maat said that Child Protective Services has been contacted in the case, and the children are currently in their grandmother’s custody.   He said the woman was convicted of drunk driving in 2002.

    Is she having her head examined while in the lock up? Why are there so many children in the grips of such low life mothers and fathers. Unbelievable.

    This is terrible, I can’t believe people still choose to make these decisions and endanger not only their lives, but their families and everyone else on the road. I work for a project where our goal is to use music to try and help promote drunk driving awareness. If you are interested on helping or spreading the word, check out our website.

    I know of a man that did this with his girlfriend 22yrs old, and 10 month old daughter in the vehicle. His name was Brian Timothy Hoffer, he only got fines and lost his license for 6 months. Still children in his custody. Why don’t they protect kids better? Sad!
