Shantel Alafita, 28, was charged with child endangering. Deputies arrested her after a relative found her outside her Maple Lane home at about 6 p.m. Saturday.

She was in and out of consciousness and intoxicated while lying on the side of road, according to a deputy’s report.

She told deputies she drank two 20-ounce glasses of vodka, and she refused to submit to a breathalyzer test at the scene, the report said. Alafita and her 4-month-old son were taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment. Doctors told deputies the child was fine.

Alafita’s blood-alcohol content was 0.266 percent, the report said. Deputies also notified social workers of the incident.
