A Houghton Lake woman was arrested for operating under the influence with occupant under 16/child endangerment and possession of methamphetamine, according to Michigan State Police.

On July 28, around 4:30 p.m., a trooper from the Michigan State Police Houghton Lake Post stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation in Roscommon Township. The driver, Jennifer Teachout, 36, showed signs of being under the influence. She was arrested after doing sobriety tests, MSP says.

Her two children and another passenger were in the car at the time. The children were given to their father while the passenger was found to be in possession of suspected narcotics. The suspected narcotics were sent to the MSP Crime Lab for analysis and the passenger was released from the scene, according to MSP.

MSP says that while Teachout was being processed at the jail, correction offers found suspected methamphetamine in her purse.

Teachout was arraigned Monday on one count possession of methamphetamine and one count operating under the influence with occupant under 16/child endangerment.
