A Long Island grandmother has been arrested for driving while intoxicated with children in the car.

Police say 64-year-old Mary Kimbrough was pulled over after she was spotted driving down a road in Commack without a left front tire Friday night. Police discovered two frightened children inside the car, ages 9 and 11.

Kimbrough had been driving for some time without the tire, police determined. She was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated DWI.
