CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa.– A woman is facing charges after admitting to taking “a couple shots” before driving with a child in the vehicle.

Jessica Rapp, 39, is facing endangering the welfare of a child and DUI charges for her role in the incident.

Police say that on November 16, 2019, Rapp was traveling west in the 5000 block of Simpson Ferry Road in Lower Allen Township when police noticed her vehicle was having trouble staying in its lane.

After a traffic stop was commenced, police say they noticed Rapp displaying significant signs of intoxication and the odor of alcohol emanating from her breath.
