It's an unlikely scene with an unusual suspect. A Long Island nun is charged with drunk driving. Police in Wantagh say 68-year-old Sister Lauren Hanley of Saint Frances de Chantal church drank for four hours before getting behind the wheel.

Police say she had a blood alcohol level of .18, more than twice the legal limit.

Witnesses claim she drove a car onto a lawn, almost running into a group of kids before hitting parked cars and crashing into a tree.

No one was hurt in the crash.
