An officer was dispatched to Evergreen Drive in German Twp. on Friday, Jan. 26. A car was backed into a tree and stuck in a yard, according to court records. The officer allegedly saw a Bud Ice beer can on the floor of the car and a half-empty bottle of brandy underneath it, court records say.

Waldron allegedly had difficulty keeping her balance, the report says, and the officer conducted a field sobriety test. A blood alcohol test was also administered and Waldron allegedly was found over the legal limit.

Four children ranging in age from 7 months to 17 years old were in the car when the alleged incident occurred, court records say.
