EXETER, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman has been arrested on charges of being drunk while baby-sitting after one of the children became concerned for their safety and called police.

Police say 30-year-old Julie Reid was charged Wednesday with six counts of endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly being intoxicated while baby-sitting last month.

Police tell the Portsmouth Herald that the woman from Exeter was drunk while taking care of six children, ages 3 to 12, at an Exeter residence.

Reid was released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail. Her court date has yet to be scheduled.
