Woman faces charges of neglect, drunken driving

Follow Daily Journal:

Police arrested an Indianapolis woman they say was intoxicated while driving with her children on U.S. 31.

Kim Jackson, 50, was arrested Sunday on two charges of neglect of a dependent and two charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Jackson had her two children in the car when she was stopped by an officer at 8:30 p.m., according to a police report.

Jackson had a blood-alcohol content of .259 percent, or more than three times the legal limit to be considered intoxicated, and police found five open bottles of vodka and wine in her car, the report said. Jackson told police that she had been at a party the night before where she had been drinking.

The two children left with a cousin who had driving ahead of Jackson in a separate car, according to the report.

Jackson, 4122 S. Keystone Ave., was taken to the Johnson County jail and held on $12,000 bond.

Jackson works as a corrections officer at the Indiana Women’s Prison in Indianapolis, and it is unclear whether or not any disciplinary action has been taken, Indiana Women’s Prison spokesperson Betty Cunningham said.
