MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

Murfreesboro police charged a woman with driving under the influence after a citizen noticed her driving her vehicle the wrong way down a street.  

Police told Nashville's News 2 Terica Cantrell, 28, was pulled over just after 5 a.m. Sunday on NW Broad Street.

"An officer noticed the car, pulled her over and noticed that she had blood shot eyes and her speech was slurred," said Sgt. Marvin Cunningham with Murfreesboro police.

An arresting officer reported Cantrell had her 11-year-old son and seven-year-old daughter in the vehicle at the time.

Authorities said Cantrell was previously accused of driving under the influence in 2004.

So far, police have not charged Cantrell with child endangerment.

"It's up to the officer what he or she decides to charge her with.  If an officer sees fit or has enough proof to charge her, it's up to them.  Other charges could be brought against her," said Sgt. Cunningham.

Cantrell is charged with her second DUI and has since been released on a $3,000 bond.

She is scheduled to appear in court in June.
