A Town of Tonawanda woman is facing a long list of charges under Leandra's Law after police arrested her on charges of driving drunk with two young passengers.

Nicole Mitri, 21, is charged with DWI, two counts of aggravated DWI and aggravated unlicensed operation.

Police say officers were responding to a report of a domestic dispute around 3 a.m. Thursday on Brighton Road when Mitri left the scene in a vehicle with two 15 year-old passengers. Police pulled her over a short time later and charged her with DWI.

Investigators say a breath test revealed Mitri's blood alcohol content was .18%, more than twice the legal limit in New York state.

Mitri is facing felony charges because her passengers were underage and because she has a past conviction for an alcohol-related offense.
