A Strong woman was arrested Thursday in Jay on several charges stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident, including endangering the welfare of a child.

Samantha Atwood, 25, of Strong, was arrested on charges of domestic violence assault, operating under the influence and endangering the welfare of a child by Jay police on Thursday night.

Around 9 p.m., police got a 911 call about a domestic dispute on Davenport Hill Road. Atwood allegedly slapped her boyfriend and then drove away from the RV they had been living in with her 3-year-old daughter, according to Jay Police Chief Richard Caton IV.

Shortly after the 911 call, Atwood was stopped by Officer Stephanie Guillemette on Davis Road. Atwood appeared intoxicated and underwent a field sobriety test which she failed, police said. While Atwood was stopped, Guillemette also noticed that Atwood’s 3-year-old daughter was in the car with no child safety restraints.

Atwood was arrested and brought to the Franklin County Jail in Farmington where she was administered a Breathalyzer test, which concluded that her blood-alcohol level was 0.15.

Atwood was released from the Franklin County Jail Friday morning on $250 cash bail, she will appear in court at 1 p.m. Aug. 23 on the three charges.
