POLICE: Louisville suspect couldn't stay awake for arrest

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville woman had trouble staying awake for her own arrest, not to mention the trip to jail.

According to an arrest report, officers found 23-year-old Danielle N. Miller intoxicated in the parking lot of Kroger on New Cut Road, near 3rd Street Road and Southside Drive Friday night. She had a 13-month-old child in her custody, and she was walking around the parking lot, holding the child.

When officers examined her, she allegedly had dilated pupils, slurred speech, glassy eyes and unsteady feet. Police say she admitted to taking Xanax earlier in the day.

During her conversation with the officers, she allegedly dropped to the ground and fell asleep.

Miller was arrested and charged with public intoxication and wanton endangerment (for putting the child in "immediate risk of injury.")

Miller slept on the way to jail, according to police.
