CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- A mom is facing charges of child abuse and neglect after police discovered her children home alone.

Police were called early Sunday morning just before 1:30 to the Ellie Plaza Place apartments following calls from neighbors about constant coughing heard through the walls.

When police arrived, a small child answered the door with no clothes on and told officers their mother had put them to bed around 9 pm.

There were no adults present at the time.

The mother, 30-year-old Taumori Dee Crawford, arrived home around 3:00 am with a male party.

According to police, Crawford had a strong odor of alcohol.

She was arrested and charged with child abuse and neglect.
