LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville mom accused of leaving her children home alone with no electricity for three days in June of 2013 is once again accused of endangering her children.

According to a police report, Jennifer Nunnally was stopped by police Sunday after a officer watched her drive the wrong way on River Park Drive.

The officer initiated a traffic stop and when he approached Nunnally he said he "could smell the strong odor of alcoholic beverages" on her breath. The officer also said he saw Nunnally stuff a tissue containing five prescription pills between the driver's seat and the center console.

Officers administered several field sobriety tests, police said, and Nunnally had difficulty following directions, as well as completing tasks.

The report states Nunnally admitted to drinking earlier in the day, but when officers searched her car they said they found both an open and unopened can of "malt beverage."

Police said Nunnally had two small children unrestrained in the back seat of the car when she was arrested.

Nunnally is charged with two counts of wanton endangerment, careless driving, failure to use child restraint device in vehicle, operating on a suspended or revoked license, possession of open an alcohol beverage container in a motor vehicle, tampering with physical evidence, possession of controlled substance and operating a motor vehicle under influence of alcohol/drugs.
