Police: Intoxicated woman accused of endangering child

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Police say an intoxicated woman was arrested after a 1-year-old child, improperly dressed for the cold weather, fell from a stroller she was pushing in Sioux Falls.

Someone who witnessed the incident called police Monday, saying the stroller tipped over and the child had tumbled out.

Police said Tuesday the boy wasn’t wearing shoes or mittens in the 22-degree weather. The child wasn’t seriously injured. A field sobriety test showed the woman had a blood alcohol content of .31, which is nearly four times the legal limit to drive.

The 37-year-old woman was arrested for child endangerment and possession of a controlled substance.
