State police say a 32-year-old Maine woman has been arrested for allegedly being drunk when she showed up at school to pick up her child.

Authorities say Jennifer Marriner was arrested for operating under the influence last Friday after she drove to the Union Elementary School to pick up her child.

Sgt. Patrick Hood tells the Bangor Daily News said that when the mother arrived, a school official called state police, who arrived at the scene within a few minutes.

The school did not release the child to the mother before police arrived.
