“When the officers asked her to stand up she was unstable,” the New York Daily News quoted TPD spokesperson Janelle McGregor as saying.

“They could smell the alcohol emitting from her mouth,” she said.

When questioned, she told the officers that she had left her children in the car so that they could watch a movie.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, both children had scratches.

Roman had entered the establishment first time briefly before returning to her pick-up.

The Florida Department of Children and Families took custody of her kids.

Roman had been taken to Hillsborough County Jail in lieu of 4,000 dollars bail.
