MOORHEAD – A former day care owner who pleaded guilty to taking care of children while drunk has been charged with drunken driving. Jayne Ann Cote, 55, of Moorhead was charged Wednesday in Clay County District Court with two counts of driving while under the influence of alcohol and one count of having an open container in the vehicle, all misdemeanors. Court documents filed in the case say Cote was pulled over at 6:50 p.m. Tuesday in the 3100 block of Highway 10 East. Cote pleaded guilty to child endangerment last January after one of the parents whose child she looked after at her home-based day care reported to police Cote seemed drunk when he dropped off his child. Cote admitted she had taken hydrocodone as well as consumed alcohol that morning before caring for children. Cote’s first court appearance is set for Feb. 24.
