he 5-year-old child was still listed in critical condition Monday after suffering a severe leg injury.
Williams was arrested Saturday on suspicion of DUI and transported to the Police Detention Unit to undergo testing.
She was arraigned at 8:15 p.m. Sunday night and charged with four counts each of aggravated assault by vehicle while DUI and reckless endangerment; three counts of simple assault; two counts of simple assault in which the victim was under 12 and the defendant over 21; and one count each of DUI, criminal mischief and possession of an instrument of crime.
Williams remained jailed Monday in lieu of 10 percent of $40,000 bail.
She is next due in court July 24 for a preliminary hearing.
