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.
At this time the identity of the pilot has not been released and what caused the crash is under investigation.
