WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (AP) _ Police in Willimantic say they charged a local woman with drunken driving after finding her slumped over the steering wheel of a van with her two children asleep in the back.

Officers told WFSB-TV (http://bit.ly/12mBcVC ) that they found 31-year-old Veronica Cruz asleep in a van that was idling in a driveway at about 2 a.m. Monday. Police say her two children, ages 5 and 6, were sleeping in the backseat.

Officers say Cruz was disoriented after they woke her up and she smelled of alcohol.

Cruz was charged with DUI and two counts of risk of injury to a minor. She posted $2,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 14.

There’s no phone listing for Cruz and it’s not clear if she has a lawyer.
