A San Anselmo nanny was arrested for allegedly driving drunk Monday afternoon while picking up two young children from their first day of school at Bacich Elementary School in Kentfield, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Nathalie Irene Winn, 47, was arrested at 3:20 p.m. Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence, CHP officer Andrew Barclay said. CHP units were called to Bacich at 699 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard at around 2:10 p.m. on a report that a car had repeatedly backed into a school sign.
The witness who reported the incident said that after the car stopped, a woman got out and staggered in the street. Barclay said. A CHP officer arrived on the scene, finding the car empty and waiting until the woman returned with two young children who she was picking up after school, Barclay said.
After stopping the woman and asking her about the alleged collision with the sign, the officer said she observed signs of intoxication and conducted a field sobriety test. The woman, later identified as Winn, failed that test and was arrested, Barclay said.
The two children were taken to the Marin CHP office in Corte Madera after the incident until their parents came to take custody of them.
Winn was booked into Marin County Jail, where she remains in custody.
