Fergus Falls, MN (WDAY TV) - A Fergus Falls woman faces charges for DWI and child neglect. She is accused of leaving her 17 month-old child at home alone and driving drunk to a gas station.

Police stopped 25 year-old Tabitha Pritchard around 3:30 Sunday morning after a gas station employee reported her as intoxicated. She told police about the child alone at home, who was taken child into protective custody.

Pitchard was cited for disorderly conduct and assault on Friday after authorities say she assaulted a woman who tried to help her with her child, who was outside with a skinned knee and no pants.
