ROYAL OAK TWP. (WWJ) - A woman was arrested for getting aggressive with police officers who tried to stop her from walking down the street with her baby while she was apparently intoxicated. 

Michigan State Police are calling it a case of child endangerment. Troopers responded to Royal Oak Township early Wednesday morning, where the 20-year-old woman was walking along Republic Street with a 4-month-old child.

When troopers approached the woman, they say she became combative and was ultimately arrested for obstruction. The child was turned over to her grandfather unharmed.

The woman was taken to the Oakland County Jail while prosecutors review the case.

Child Protective Services has been notified of the incident.
