Police in Salem, New Hampshire, have arrested a woman accused of driving under the influence of Heroin while two children were in the vehicle.

Officers responded to the area of 67 Main St. around 6 Wednesday night for a report of a vehicle operating erratically.

Witnesses told police the driver crossed a median to do a u-turn and struck a parked vehicle in a parking lot.

Officers found the driver, later identified as Sarah Breau, 29, of Hopkinton, who was trying to walk away from the vehicle.

She reportedly told police she drove to Lawrence, Massachusetts, to purchase heroin.

Officers searched the vehicle and found bags with a powdery substance and two kids in the vehicle.

Breau was arrested and charged with possessing heroin, child endangerment and criminal mischief.

While in the hospital police say she removed a bandage and sutures, causing a large amount of blood to spill on the floor.

She was held on $1,000 and was arraigned Thursday, when she was released on $5,000 bail.
