A young Indiana mother is arrested in Madisonville last night.
Police say she was drinking at a motel bar, while her 4 year-old child was wondering the halls.
20 year-old Denitra Woodson of Franklin, Indiana,  is now facing several charges including endangering the welfare of a child, assault and resisting arrest.
Madisonville Police say they had to tase Woodson before they could arrest her Monday at the Days Inn.
She allegedly told officers her cousin was watching her child in the motel room, but they say both Woodson and the other adult appeared to have been drinking while the child was walking through the halls.
