A Tucker County woman is behind bars after authorities said she was driving recklessly with two unrestrained children in the backseat of her car.

Sheriff's deputies pulled over a vehicle driven by Jessica Poe, 24, after the Tucker County Sheriff's Department received reports of a reckless driver on Route 72, north of Parsons.

When they located the vehicle, deputies said Poe was noticeably impaired, and two children were in the backseat without car seats.

Poe was charged with two counts of child neglect with risk of serious injury, two counts of no child restraints, and one count of no operators.

Poe is in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail awaiting arraignment.

West Virginia State Police also assisted in the arrest.
