A Texas mother likely won't be winning any Mother of the Year awards.

Houston police say they found Stephanie Santana passed out in the parking lot of a tattoo parlor where she was turned away by employees because she was drunk.

Inside the car were beer bottles, prescription drugs and Santana's 1-year-old daughter.

Additionally, police say Santana is expecting another child.

Santana faces charges of driving while intoxicated, child endangerment, and possession of a controlled substance. County records show Santana was already on probation.

The child in the car was not hurt.
