Town of Maine, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A town of Maine woman is arrested on child endangerment charges.

Deputies responded to Ericka Pease's trailer on Cherry Drive in the town of Maine around 11:30 Thursday night.

The trailer's door was left wide open.

A 5-year-old boy was running around the neighborhood and a 1-year-old boy was found inside the trailer sitting in a playpen with a soiled diaper.

Deputies said Pease was on the couch asleep and they couldn't wake her up. When she finally woke up, she admitted to taking painkillers.

Pease refused medical treatment and was arrested and transported to the Broome County Jail. She will return to Maine Court on a later date.

Pease is charged with two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
