I agree. But I do think that if you're under the legal limit, then you're under the legal limit. So that charge is bogus.

We know what her breathalyzer said, but alcohol isn't the only "influence" she could be under, and he couldn't have done a field test for other substances. If someone's driving (or behavior when they've gotten out of the car) convinces the cop that they were under the influence of something that impaired them, I'd think he'd be right to charge the driver.

I'm betting the child endangerment charges won't stand, but there's several other charges that might.
