Police in Carver, Massachusetts, arrested a woman who was found asleep and intoxicated behind the wheel of a running, parked car, with two children in the back seat.

It happened Saturday night when Police responded to a report of a suspicious car that kept pulling in and out of a driveway on Tremont Street.

Police arrived to find a 2002 Mercury Sable parked in the driveway of a home with the engine running, headlights on, and the operator asleep behind the wheel.

Two children were asleep in the back seat of the car.

Jennifer Bangs, 40, of Wareham, MA, was identified as the operator. After finally responding to police officers, she failed a field sobriety test and was arrested.

The two minor children were released to a family member and the Department of Children and Families was notified.

Bangs was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and two counts of child endangerment.
