TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A North Carolina mother is in jail after taking her young children on a drunken car ride.

The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office arrested 27-year-old Rachel Frazier on charges of felony child neglect Sunday night. They say she drove her two children about 2 miles from a relatives home to a Tampa hotel while drunk.

Frazier was visiting Tampa relatives with her children who are four and nearly one-years-old.

Relatives tried to stop Frazier from driving. When she refused, they called police.
