by Patricia A. Miller

Police recently arrested a Forked River woman who was very intoxicated and driving with an infant in her car, Police Chief David A. Paprota said.

Heather M. Schmidt, 30, Wyatt Court, was stopped by Patrolman Dimitri Tsarnas at 11:47 p.m. on March 24. She was arrested at the scene, the chief said.

She was transported to police headquarters and processed, then taken to Community Medical Center in Toms River for treatment due to her "high level of intoxication," Paprota said.

Smith was charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, and operating an unregistered vehicle, the chief said.

Schmidt also received a criminal summons for operating a motor vehicle with a minor passenger while driving under the influence, Paprota said.

The New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency was contacted due to the presence of an infant child in the vehicle, he said..

That's one of the things I like about you Clem, you don't give me no lies and keep your hands to yourself. That practice and a bit of sanitizer are superlative measures in the prevention of swine flu. When in Rome, as they say.

So sad that the child had to be put in danger because it's mother was sloshed! What a piece of crap! Hope they put the kid in safe hands and away from her! She deserves to go to jail.....maybe she will learn a lesson from it.
