A Putnam County mom has been arrested for drunk driving with her 12-year-old child in the back seat, according to police.
Yorktown police were called to the scene Saturday on East Main Street in Jefferson Valley.
They discovered 43-year-old Jennifer MacDonald's car slammed into a utility pole.
After an investigation, police determined MacDonald was intoxicated and had her child in the back seat.
MacDonald, a repeat offender, was taken into custody and transported to the hospital for evaluation.
She is facing a long list of charges including driving while intoxicated and child endangerment. She is due back in court next month.
