Woman found slumped in car by Delaware Park with kids aboard

A Buffalo woman was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated Saturday night after she was found slumped in her vehicle with two young children in the back seat near Delaware Park.

Buffalo Police reported that Doretha Medley, 64, of Elsie Place, was found slumped over the wheel of a car around 8:50 p.m. while parked on Nottingham Terrace by the park. Police reported finding two children, ages 3 and 9, sitting in the back seat.

Medley failed field sobriety tests and was found to have a blood alcohol content of .15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit, when she took a breathalyzer test, police reported. The car was impounded and the children were picked up by their mother after she was contacted by Buffalo police.
