LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A woman is now behind bars after police say she was caught speeding and driving under the influence with a minor in the vehicle.
According to an arrest report, 43-year-old Tamela Coulter was spotted by an officer recklessly driving 50 mph in a 35 mph zone.
Police say that Coulter was stopped by an officer after she was also spotted weaving down the roadway on Cooper Chapel Rd.
When asked by officers why she was speeding and weaving down the road, she allegedly told the officer she had dropped a cigarette in the car which caused her to weave down the roadway.
Police say that the officer who stopped Coulter also found her nine-year-old son in the vehicle with her, and that her actions placed the child in substantial danger of death or serious injury.
According to an arrest report police say Coulter had the smell of an alcoholic beverage coming from her breath. She also allegedly had slurred speech, glassy eyes, and was unsteady on her feet. Police say after failing a field sobriety test, Coulter admitted to the officer that she had two beers earlier before driving.
Coulter is charged with speeding 15 mph over the limit, operating a motor vehicle under the influence, first degree wanton endangerment, and reckless driving.
