Police: Felton-area woman accused of DUI with three children in vehicle
A Felton-area woman is facing multiple charges after she allegedly was driving under the influence with three children in the SUV, state police said.
Angela Nicole Lloyd-Wernick, 40, of 4241 Ridgeway Drive, North Hopewell Township, also refused to be placed in handcuffs several times after being stopped, and she was screaming and causing a disturbance in the parking lot of the Rite Aid in York Township, according to a criminal complaint.
Lloyd-Wernick was arraigned Saturday, Feb. 1, before Magisterial District Judge John H. Fishel. She is charged with a felony count of endangering the welfare of children, one misdemeanor count each of DUI, tampering with evidence and obstructing the administration of law, and a summary count of disorderly conduct for engaging in fighting.
She faces a preliminary hearing at 9:15 a.m. Feb. 14.
According to the criminal complaint, state police responded to a call around 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, of an erratic driver heading toward Red Lion on Route 24.
The caller said Lloyd-Wernick was weaving between lanes of travel, and troopers stopped her 2008 Ford Explorer a short time later.
State police said she smelled of alcohol and was placed under arrest for suspicion of DUI. She had three children in her car, ages 15, 14 and 3, state police said.
Troopers said Lloyd-Wernick was screaming and causing a disturbance in the parking lot. In addition, state police said her vehicle registration had expired Nov. 19.
She was taken to central booking for arraignment and refused a blood draw.
