Niagara County Sheriff's deputies said Amanda Kramer, 26, was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child, driving while ability impaired by the combined influence of drugs or of alcohol, endangering the welfare of a child and a number of other vehicle and traffic law charges.
Deputies said that at around 2:14 a.m. Wednesday, dispatchers at the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center received a 911 call from a clerk at 7-Eleven in North Tonawanda. They said the clerk was concerned about a possibly intoxicated woman who had just left the store.

After field sobriety testing, Kramer was taken to the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office for further evaluation. The child was turned over to a guardian.
A certified Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) was called-in and Kramer was determined to be under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
