Carver: South Shore woman arrested for OUI with kids in car

A Wareham woman will appear in court on Monday, charged with driving drunk with her kids in the car.

Police were called to a home on Tremont St. in Carver Saturday night on a report of someone repeatedly pulling into and out of the driveway.

Officers say they arrived to find 40-year-old Jennifer Bangs passed out behind the wheel with the two young girls asleep in the back seat.

Officers finally managed to wake the woman up, and arrested her after she failed a sobriety test.

The children are in the care of a relative and friend of the family, and the Department of Children and Families has been notified.

Bangs will appear in Wareham District Court.
