At about 7:45 p.m. last night, employees of the McDonald's restaurant in Clinton called the Clinton police to report a female was at the drive-thru and appeared to be intoxicated. Employees also reported that the female had a very young child in the car with her.
Officers responded and located this female, subsequently identified as Michelle Dion, 28, of 23 Mystic Street, Springfield, Mass., in the drive-thru lane with a two-year-old baby in the car.
Officers determined that Dion was extremely intoxicated and she was arrested for DUI. Dion was also charged with risk of injury to a minor. The child was taken into protective custody and brought to the Clinton Police station. DCF was notified and is also conducting an independent investigation into this matter. The child was eventually turned over to a family member.
Dion is currently being held at Clinton PD on a $1,000 bond, and is scheduled to be arraigned today at Middlesex Superior Court in Middletown.
