Central Ohio Mother Accused Of Driving Drunk With Juveniles In Car


Investigators said an alert clerk at a Central Ohio business caught a suspected mother driving drunk with three juveniles in the car and called police.

Delaware Police said Sema Williams, 32, is facing child endangerment and OVI charges after a Dairy Queen clerk saw what appeared to be a child in trouble.

"One of the children in the car looked like they mouthed help to the attendee at dairy queen," said Captain Juston Herning of the Delaware City Police Department.

Investigators said when they located Williams a short time later on East Central Avenue, she was arguing with one of her teenage passengers.

"They could smell alcohol coming from her. Her eyes were bloodshot and glassy. She was unsteady on her feet and swaying back and forth." Herning told 10TV's Jason Frazer.

Investigators said the kids were not harmed.

Williams was arrested on suspicion of OVI.

"She was very argumentative, yelled profanities at them. There was no remorse whatsoever." said Capt. Herning.

Police said she was also uncooperative at the city jail. They said Williams continued not to follow an officer's commands. At one point, investigators said video obtained by 10TV shows her throwing a piece of paper on the floor and resisting being put in handcuffs.

"She was yelling profanity at the officers (and) wouldn't place her hands behind her back." says Capt Herning.

10TV stopped by Williams' home for comment, but no one answered the door.

Court documents show that back in 2006 her license was suspended for OVI as well.
