Portsmouth,  Va. - Zakia Green, with her eyes barely open, posed for her mugshot after police say the mother was found driving drunk with her teenage daughter in the backseat.

Early Tuesday morning, Portsmouth officers spotted a car driving the wrong way down High Street, a few miles out from Olde Towne.

Green was just outside her Portsmouth neighborhood when officers pulled her over.

When they did, they found her 14-year-old daughter with her.

It was just shy of 2 a.m.

Officers add she was driving with a suspended license.

In addition to the driving under the influence charge she faces, police say she's a thief.

Officers say they found several bottles of alcohol in her purse, bottles that had been taken from a 7-Eleven store.
