KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- A Knox County woman was charged with DUI after she left her car in front of an elementary school and passed out in the back seat.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports someone called the sheriff's department at about 7 a.m. Friday because the car was parked in the student drop-off lane. It had been driven onto the curb and two tires were blown. Parents taking their children to school had to drive around it.

The vehicle was reported as abandoned, but sheriff's office spokeswoman Hillary Coward said deputies found 27-year-old Jessica Morris in the back seat.

Morris told officers she had been at a bar in the early hours of the morning. She failed a field sobriety test.

No number was listed for Morris in the phone directory.
