A woman was charged with extreme DUI with children in the car after test results showed her blood-alcohol content at five times the legal limit. 

On June 1, a Scottsdale woman was charged by prosecutors with extreme DUI with children in the car. 

Tempe police reported that about 2:30 p.m. on January 15 they were called to a business parking lot near Rio Salado Parkway and Mill Avenue. 

A security guard found a woman, 38-year-old Chantel Janine Foster, passed out in a car with two children inside. The guard reportedly told police that the car was running and in gear while Foster was unconscious. 

Police say the two children, ages 9 and 10, were unharmed. 

Foster, however, was allegedly unable to stand. 

Police reportedly found an open bottle of Vodka in her purse. 

Paramedics took Foster to Tempe St. Luke's Hospital where a search warrant was executed, and a blood draw was taken nearly three hours after her contact with police. 

Hospital workers reportedly informed police that her B.A.C. level was .40 -- five times the legal limit. 

Foster stayed at the hospital until cleared for release by doctors. 

She has been charged with four counts of DUI.
