Police in Halifax say a 36-year-old woman driving with two kids in her car, including an eight-month-old infant, has been charged with impaired driving for being five times over the legal blood-alcohol limit.

Halifax RCMP say one of its officers saw a car stopped in the middle of Forest Hills Parkway in Cole Harbour around noon on Sunday.

The driver was immediately arrested for impaired driving, and police say when she provided breath samples, came in at five times above the legal limit.

An eight-month-old infant and an 13-year-old child were both in the car at the time. Police say arrangements were made for the children to be put in the car of someone else.

Jennifer Sims appeared in Dartmouth provincial court on Monday to face five charges, including impaired driving.
