NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) — A local woman is facing charges of placing a child in harm’s way under Leandra’s Law.
Police stopped Christina M. Mack, a 38-year-old Amherst native, after they say they observed her swerving between lanes on Niagara Falls Boulevard. Police say they suspected her of being intoxicated, potentially on pain medication.
A drug recognition expert evaluated her, and then transported her to receive blood work. Police arrested her and charged her with criminal possession of a controlled substance, DWI under Leandra’s Law and failure to keep right.
Mack will return to court on Aug. 3.
