Rhode Island state police have arrested a pregnant woman for driving drunk.

They say Taja Perry was involved in a car crash in Providence just before noon Saturday. The 26-year-old Pawtucket resident was taken into custody after appearing intoxicated.

She was arraigned on charges of driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance (Adderall), driving without a license, driving in possession of a controlled substance, and obstructing an officer.

Perry was released and turned over to a responsible adult. She'll be formally arraigned Dec. 1 in Third Division District Court in Warwick.

Perry's arrest was also referred to the state Department of Children, Youth and Family for a possible investigation to protect the unborn child.
