LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – After being pulled over for running a red light, police discovered open alcohol containers and a small child not properly secured in the car of a Louisville woman.

An officer spotted Kendrona Irvin, 23, running a red light at the intersection of Taylor Boulevard and 4th street. When she was pulled over, the officer saw two open containers of alcohol in plain sight in her car. A child was also seen in the back of the car without a car seat.

The officer performed a field sobriety test on Irvin, which she failed. Her blood alcohol content was later tested and shown to be .169, over twice the legal limit.

According to the police report, she gave the arresting officer an ID stating her name was Kendrona Irvin. Once at the station, she told police her real name was Terrah Love. It is unclear which name is her legal name.

She was charged with first degree wanton endangerment, DUI, identity theft, endangering the welfare of a minor, driving without a license, lack of a child restraint system, driving without insurance, and disobeying a traffic control device.
