North Hampton woman with children in car faces aggravated DWI charge


NEWMARKET - A North Hampton woman arrested for aggravated driving while intoxicated on Route 108 had two children, 8 and 13, in the vehicle, police said.

Carrie Towne, 34, of the Pine Haven Motel was arrested around 6 p.m. Friday after a concerned citizen reported her erratic driving, Newmarket Police Lt. Kyle True said Tuesday.

A police officer followed Towne for quite a distance before stopping her, True said. The officer conducted a roadside conversation with Towne before requesting she perform a series of field sobriety tests, which she failed, True said.

True said the two children in the car were known to Towne; he would not say if they are Towne's children.

They were taken into protective custody and later released to a sober adult.

Towne was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated as a result of having the children in the car. She was released on $1,500 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the 10th Circuit Court, Brentwood Division, on May 7 for arraignment.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
