An officer pulled Green over and spoke with her about the tire. She was surprised to see her tire in that condition, authorities said.

Green told police she was driving from a party at a Warren entertainment establishment, police said. She admitted to having two alcoholic drinks, officials said.

A 15-year-old boy was sitting in the front passenger seat, and five children were in the back seat, the officer said. Two of the children were sitting on others’ laps and weren’t belted into the car, according to authorities.

Police asked Green to perform sobriety tests, and she did poorly, they said. She submitted to a breath test, which showed a blood alcohol content of .168, officials said.

Green’s Michigan driver’s license was also suspended, according to police.

Green was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated with children under 16 in the car, driving with a suspended license and violation of the child restraint law.

She was arraigned Wednesday at 52-4 District Court.

Officials turned the children over to Green’s mother, they said.
