Nebraska authorities say a Papillion mother faces a felony child abuse charge for leaving her toddler home alone while she was out drinking.
Sarpy County attorney Tricia Freeman says the 25-year-old was arrested Friday night. It's unclear if she has been charged.
Freeman says the woman was pulled over for drinking and driving and tested at more than twice the legal blood alcohol level. She told police she had to get home.
Police say they found her home unlocked and her 3-year-old son asleep in a bedroom.
The woman also faces third offense drunk driving charges.
