A concerned citizen called 9-1-1 to report a suspected drunk driver in East Gwillimbury on Friday. Officers stopped the vehicle on Mount Albert Road.
Police say that the female driver had a one-year-old baby in the backseat when she was arrested.
The Children’s Aid Society was notified and the baby was placed in the care of a family member.
The woman’s driver’s licence was already under suspension from a previous impaired driving incident in January, according to York Regional Police.
Between April 8 and April 15, 24 drivers have been charged with drunk driving in the York Region.
York Regional Police have received over 800 calls to 9-1-1 which have led to more than 490 criminal charges this year.
