BOZEMAN -

A Bozeman woman was arrested after reportedly leaving with two children in her car after a hit and run crash on Friday.

Valarie K. McClain, 46, was charged with criminal child endangerment, following too closely, driving without a valid driver's license and obstructing a peace officer and seen in Gallatin County Justice Court on Monday morning. McClain faces a $5,000 bond and her next court date is set for Oct. 6.

According to charging documents, McClain and her vehicle were located at a Bozeman gas station, where she identified herself to a Montana Highway Patrol trooper as “Valarie Kay Williams.” She was later identified as Valarie Kay McClain.

McClain had an expired Nebraska driver license.

The trooper noted that McClain’s speech was slow and confused and she had bloodshot and glossy eyes with a distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person. McClain was reportedly very uneasy on her feet but refused to provide a breath sample.
