(KNZA)--A Hiawatha woman is facing felony child endangerment and other charges following a traffic stop last Thursday evening in Brown County.

Brown County Sheriff John Merchant, in a release, said a Sheriff's deputy initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle on U.S. 75 Highway near 160th Road for a tag light violation around 7:50.

Following the traffic stop, Merchant said the driver, 36-year-old Cynthia Flores, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, transporting an open container, obstruction and two counts of aggravated child endangerment.

Merchant said two children under the age of 18 were present in the vehicle at the time of the traffic stop.

Following her arrest, Flores was booked into the Brown County Jail. She was released Friday on a $2,500 OR bond.
