Elena Ford, the great-great-granddaughter of Henry Ford, has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence and child endangerment.

Details are limited, but Ford's global marketing director was pulled over by police in Ferndale, Michigan on Sunday night. After failing sobriety tests, police took her into custody, impounded her 2011 Ford Explorer, and took her son - who was in the car - back home.

The company declined to comment, but Elena Ford is apparently free and awaiting trial.
