YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Her 3-year-old son was crying in the back seat when Upper Saddle River police said they found a former River Edge woman passed out on the center console of her car, its engine running, on the shoulder of Route 17 last night.

Responding to a 911 call from a local business owner, offices arrested 36-year-old Jennifer Feola on a host of offenses, including child endangerment, heroin possession and DWI, after finding her unconscious and the blond-headed youngster in back, Detective Lt. Edward Kane told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this morning.

They seized 32 bags of heroin, a hypodermic needle and a crack pipe, he said.

The state Division of Child Protection and Permanency placed her son with a family member.

The 5-foot-1-inch, 110-pound Feola, currently of the Orange County town of New Windsor in New York, was being held on $15,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
