MOUNT SINAI, N.Y. (AP) – A 19-year-old Long Island baby sitter is facing charges after police say she was intoxicated while driving with four children in her car.

Suffolk County police say a good Samaritan called them Thursday afternoon to report an intoxicated woman who was unable to find her car in a lot near a beach in the town of Mount Sinai. Police say once the woman found her car, she tried to drive away with four boys aged 4 to 11 inside, but the good Samaritan used her own vehicle to block the woman until police arrived.

Sabrina Macri, of Sound Beach, New York, is charged with DWI, child endangerment, possession of a controlled substance and other counts.

She has been held pending arraignment Friday.
