The vehicle was running and in park,” the post said. Also in the car: an unrestrained 4-year-old child in the back seat, police said. As the child was taken into protective custody, police arrested the car’s adult occupants: Monica Cook, 33, on suspicion of driving under the influence and child endangerment; and Thomas Oliver, 34, on public intoxication and child endangerment charges. Both were booked into the Yolo County Jail. “Please remember that driving under the influence of anything that impairs your driving is illegal. Be responsible and have plans set for a designated driver if you plan on partaking in alcohol,” the Facebook post said.
