LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man and woman are facing charges after allegedly smoking spice before taking two children out in a stroller. 

According to the arrest report, it happened Saturday on N. 24th Street in Portland. That's when police responded to a report of a man and woman appearing to be intoxicated as they pushed the stroller along. The caller told police the two had knocked the stroller over with the children in it. 

When officers arrived, they found 36-year-old Tonya Young and 30-year-old Gregory Brown in what appeared to be an intoxicated state. The arrest report states that "the man appeared to be trying to hold the woman up by the arm" and "both were holding on to each other and the stroller for support."

Police say Young could not keep her eyes open and was unsteady on her feet. 

When asked if they were on drugs of any kind, police say Brown responded that they had both smoked spice. 

EMS was called to have the children checked out because of the report stating that the stroller had been knocked over. The children were taken to Kosair Children's Hospital and CPS was called. 

Brown and Young were arrested and charged with public intoxication on a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a minor.
