MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) - The owner of a Moorhead home day care is accused of being drunk while she was supposed to be watching seven children.

Thirty-four-year-old Holly Heiser is charged with seven counts of neglect or endangerment of a child.

Assistant Clay County Attorney Pam Harris tells KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1OxtFtO ) a parent notified police about Heiser on Sept. 11.

Court documents say Heiser told police that she started drinking vodka about two hours before police arrived. Heiser’s blood-alcohol level was 0.277 percent, more than three times Minnesota’s legal limit for driving of 0.08 percent.

All of the children are under the age of 3. The Minnesota Department of Human Services has since temporarily suspended Heiser’s license.

Heiser’s attorney, Jade Rosenfeldt, declined to comment. Heiser’s first court appearance is set for Oct. 29.

This story has been corrected to show Heiser told police she started drinking about two hours before police arrived, not two hours before children arrived.
