POMFRET — A Buffalo woman was arrested on a felony charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated early Monday after she was stopped by state troopers for speeding on Route 60.

Ttroopers said Janine Smith, 31, failed standard sobriety tests and was arrested for DWI under Leandra’s Law because she had a 5-year-old and a 7-year old inside the vehicle with her as passengers. In addition, troopers said, the youngest child, who was a backseat passenger in the vehicle, was not harnessed in an appropriate child car seat.

Smith is scheduled to appear in Town of Pomfret Court on June 17.
