MADISON (WKOW) — A Madison woman was arrested after she was found asleep behind the wheel in the middle of a downtown roadway with two infants in her vehicle Tuesday afternoon, according to the Madison Police Department.
Police say, just before 3:15 p.m., officers found 37-year-old Rosavi L. Cabrera asleep behind the wheel in a traffic lane near Monona Terrace. They say when Cabrera was found the car was running, and she had her foot on the brake. Officers saw two infants in the backseat of her vehicle.
