CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Cincinnati woman faces several charges after police say she was driving drunk with her grandchild in the car.

Maria Krull, 46, was arrested Tuesday on West Third Street. Police say her blood-alcohol level was .415, which is over five times Ohio's legal limit of .08. She also had expired license plates.

Krull was charged with driving under OVI suspension, driving while intoxicated, unauthorized license plates and speeding. In addition, she is also charged with child endangering because she had her 5-year-old granddaughter in the car with her.

She was arraigned Wednesday afternoon, where her bond was set at 10 percent of $32,000.
