Police: Ohio woman drove drunk with kids to sell pills

Nancy Miller is charged with drug trafficking and endangering children

BROOKFIELD, OH (WKBN) - A Brookfield woman is facing several charges, accused of driving drunk with three kids in her car after illegally selling her pills. 

Nancy Miller, 55, is charged with physical control, driving under suspension, trafficking in drugs and endangering children.

Police said on May 23, officers received a report that Miller left the Brookfield Diner highly intoxicated, although someone tried to stop her from leaving. 

Officers went to her home on Everett-East Road, where they found Miller and the children.

Police said the children reported that Miller had been drinking vodka out of a mason jar and that she was "drunk" and driving "fast." One of the children reported that Miller went to the diner to sell her back pills, according to a police report. 

Police said Miller admitted to selling the Tramadol pills to a worker at the diner for gas money, saying she does it frequently. 

According to a report, Miller had a blood-alcohol content of .271, well above the legal driving limit of .08. 

Miller was arrested and taken to the Trumbull County Jail.

Police then spoke with the worker who denied buying the pills and wasn't found with them. Police noted that her speech was heavy and that she was using the counter to balance herself.
