On Friday, Jan. 18, police arrested Candace Jenkins, 40, of 10 Elliott Place, Newport on a first offense driving under the influence charge. Police said her 8 year-old daughter was in the car.

According to the police report, an employee from the Potter League Animal Shelter reported that an intoxicated woman with a young girl drove out of the parking lot. Police spotted a suspect vehicle on Oliphant Lane that was swerving across the road.  Jenkins drove into the driveway of 223 Oliphant Lane, over the grass, then back onto the driveway and stopped, said police.
