[caption id="attachment_82611" align="alignright" width="706"] Cole Harbour Woman Driving with Two Children on Board Charged with Drunk Driving (near Chameau Crescent in Cole Harbour)[/caption]In Cole Harbour, a woman was arrested and jailed on Sunday for driving while under the influence. In the car with her were two small children. Jennifer Ann Sims complied to taking multiple breath tests that revealed she was not only over the legal blood alcohol limit, but her blood alcohol content was five times the legal limit. Sims was arrested for the charge and taken into custody.
On Monday, Sims was greeted with three different charges in court. The charges were two counts of probation violation, driving while under the influence, and testing positive for a blood alcohol content that was over the legal limit.
At around 12:00 PM on Sunday afternoon, an officer on duty observed a stopped car on Forest Hills Parkway. The officer approached the car and immediately noticed that the driver, Sims, was exhibiting signs of impairment. In the car with Sims were a 13 year old child and an 8 month old infant. Both children were seized by police.
It might come as a surprise that this incident is not the first one relating to drunk driving that Sims has been involved with. Over the past five years, this incident marks the fourth time that Sims has been involved with a drunk driving offense. In March of 2009, Sims was found guilty of impaired driving after going through a traffic stop.
In September of 2012, Sims pled guilty to charges in connection with incidents that took place in September of 2010 and May of 2011. In the September of 2010, Sims was charged with driving under the influence and having a blood alcohol content over the legal limit. In May of 2011, she refused a breathalyzer test.
