A Hopkins woman faces a host of charges after allegedly driving drunk with two children in her car.
Jamyria Leon Olson was charged Wednesday with drunken driving, fleeing police in a motor vehicle and two counts of child endangerment, according to a criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court.
It's the second time in seven months that Olson has been charged with drunken driving. She was convicted of fourth-degree drunken driving in October, records show.
In Wednesday's case, Hopkins police attempted to stop Olson after seeing her driving on the wrong side of the road and running a red light just after midnight at S. 1st Street and 11th Avenue in Hopkins. She failed to stop and swerved across traffic lanes until police caught up to her.
Two children, ages 1 and 10, were in the back seat, said Sgt. Michael Glassberg of the Hopkins Police Department.
Olson, 23, of Hopkins, registered a blood alcohol content reading of 0.20% after a roadside test. The legal limit for driving is 0.08%.
"This was a very dangerous situation and could have had tragic consequences," Glassberg said in a statement.
Olson was taken to the Hennepin County jail and was later released. She is due in court Friday afternoon.
