Multiple charges

On March 19 at approximately 6:45 p.m., a 911 call to police reported a green Chevy Suburban driving erratically on Marshall Avenue and forcing oncoming vehicles off the shoulder of the road, according to police reports. Police located the Suburban at the intersection of Marshall Avenue and St. George Road, and stopped the driver in the parking lot near Best Buy. The driver, Mary R. O’Neil, 37, of South Burlington, was taking seven children ages 3 to 12 — including two of her own kids — to the movies, according to police. She subsequently “provided a breath sample indicating a blood alcohol concentration of .379,” according to the report. The legal limit for driving in Vermont is .08.

O’Neil was cited on charges of driving under the influence, child endangerment and gross and negligent operation of a vehicle, according to the report. Police told the Observer that O’Neil had faced similar charges in Williston and out of state in the past, but was never convicted. She was taken to Act 1 Detoxification Center and is scheduled to appear in court on March 25. The children in the vehicle were picked up by O’Neil’s husband and two other parents, according to police.
