Madison: A Beaver Dam woman accused of driving drunk the wrong way down Highway 151 with her one-week-old baby in the car has pleaded not guilty.

Katie Janisch showed up for traffic court Thursday, but only to have her lawyer enter a not guilty plea on her behalf.

The 24-year-old mother faces seven charges including driving the wrong way down a divided highway, driving with open intoxicants in the car, operating while intoxicated, and not buckling in her one-week-old baby girl.

Officers arrested Janisch March 28 after she nearly collided with a semi while driving the wrong way on Highway 151.
