Woman Charged With Wanton Endangerment

A Hopkinsville woman is facing wanton endangerment and DUI charges after police say she was driving under the influence with her infant in the vehicle. Hopkinsville Police report officers observed 29-year old Caroline Boley-Davis driving on the wrong side of the road and weaving on Fairfax Avenue shortly after 5:40 Monday afternoon.

Upon contact, police say her speech was slow and slurred and her movements were slow and lethargic. They indicate she performed poorly on field sobriety tests and then admitted to taking two Buprenorphine/naloxone pills prior to driving. Officers say Davis also had her three-month old infant in the vehicle while driving impaired, creating a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to the child.

Boley-Davis was taken into custody and lodged in the Christian County Jail charged with Operating a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence of Drugs due to aggravating circumstances, 1st Degree Wanton Endangerment, and Failure to Notify Address Change to the Department of Transportation.
