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.
