A 31-year-old Natick firefighter-EMT who lives in Southbridge who was driving with her infant and 11-year-old child as passengers Saturday night has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette is reporting

Police say Keri L. Belmore, 51 Whitetail Circle, Southbridge, was given two breath tests, which showed blood-alcohol levels of .24 and .23. The legal limit is .08.

Belmore pleaded not guilty in Dudley District Court yesterday to two counts of child endangerment while driving under the influence of alcohol, driving under the influence and a marked lanes violation. Judge Neil G. Snider released her on personal recognizance and scheduled a pretrial hearing for Jan. 28.

According to a report filed by Patrolman Dean S. Bruneau, Belmore failed field sobriety and the breath tests after he pulled over her Ford Explorer near the intersection of East Main Street and North Woodstock Road about 9:30 p.m.

The officer allowed Ms. Belmore’s boyfriend, who arrived separately, to taken home both children. A copy of the police report was forwarded to the Department of Social Services.
