BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police have charged a Vermont woman with being intoxicated while driving three children in her car.

Evelyn O'Brien of Bennington pleaded innocent on Monday to two charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and three charges of reckless endangerment.
An officer said he stopped the 53-year-old O'Brien after seeing her drift toward an opposite lane while driving through an intersection in Bennington over the weekend.
Three were three children in the car, ages 8, 9, and 10. Police said two of them were O'Brien's grandchildren and the third was a family friend.
