ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (WOIO) - New video from Rocky River police shows officers arrest a 43-year-old Cleveland woman for driving impaired with a child in the car.

Two vehicles were waiting at a red light when the altercation took place, according to police, with the 43-year-old woman driving the car in front.

The other driver felt she was not pulled up far enough to activate the signal, Rocky River police said.

They honked their horn, according to police, and motioned for her to move forward.

Rocky River police said that’s when the woman and her passenger exited the car, which was also occupied by a 1-year-old boy.

They allegedly hit and pushed the other driver and passenger before police arrived on scene.

According to police, officers arrested the woman for drunk driving, endangering children and obstructing official business.

The passenger, identified as an 18-year-old Cleveland man, was arrested for assault, Rocky River police said.
