LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Police in Audubon Park have arrested a woman after she was allegedly found passed out in a car with her 4-year-old daughter inside.

Kayla Welsh was arrested Monday night on Preston Highway, after authorities say she was found passed out in her black Nissan, in front of an antique store on Preston Highway, according to police records.

Upon discovering the vehicle, officers say they found Welsh's 4-year-old daughter in the passenger seat of the vehicle. Authorities say they also found a nearly empty bottle of Sailor Jerry's rum in the floorboard of the passenger's seat.

Officers say it took several attempts to wake Welsh up and that her breath smelled of alcohol and her eyes were bloodshot. She reportedly admitted to cops that she had drank several shots of liquor earlier in the day.

Welsh was charged with public intoxication and wanton endangerment.
