Alcohol in car with kids
Butte police responding to a home on the 3100 block of Carter Street just after midnight Friday arrested a woman for allegedly driving drunk with two children in the car. Police said Crystal Lynn Thompson, 36, told them she had been driving, and when she opened the door to get her ID, officers saw an open Twisted Tea inside. According to police, Thomas failed field sobriety tests, and the kids — 5 and 7 years old — were released to another adult. At the jail, police said Thompson blew over the legal driving limit and she was booked for misdemeanor DUI and two counts of felony criminal endangerment.
Probation and Parole officers arrested Shelly Nelson, 40, for felony probation violation at a home on the 50 block of West Granite Street around 3:30 p.m. Thursday. When police took Nelson into custody, they said they found a loaded syringe and pills on her and booked her on additional charges of felony drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
