A Casanova woman was arrested Monday and charged with driving under the influence and felony child neglect after allegedly crashing her vehicle into a sheriff’s office patrol vehicle, according to a press release from the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office. A toddler was allegedly in the vehicle she was driving.
