WICHITA — A woman was arrested and two young children taken into protective custody after residents of west Wichita reported bizarre behavior by a driver Wednesday night.

Police said the woman reportedly pulled into the driveway of a house in the 5000 block of West Douglas at about 8:20 p.m. Wednesday. She got out, urinated in the yard and then slapped a 3-year-old child in the face a number of times.

She then drove away, pulling into a second yard and then a third, where she ran over a mailbox. The locations were several blocks apart, Capt. Darrell Atteberry said.

The woman was pulled over at a fourth address and taken into custody. Officers are investigating whether she was driving under the influence.

Two young children with her were placed in protective custody.
