OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A woman has been arrested in Oklahoma City on a child endangerment complaint after police say she left a baby in a vehicle while drinking at a bar.

Police say the 33-year-old woman, who was arrested Saturday, consumed two shots while at a Louie’s Bar and Grill for about 30 minutes.

The manager said she thought the suspect was too intoxicated to drive, so she walked the suspect to her car to retrieve her phone and call for a ride. The manager told police she saw an 8-month-old girl in a car seat.

A police officer who arrived on the scene said they saw the woman fall while holding the child in her arms, but that the child did not appear to be injured.

A Department of Human Services worker determined the child should be placed into protective custody.
