(CINCINNATI) -- A Cincinnati woman faces jail time for carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest.

Police say they attempted to pull over Lauren Watts, 20, for a traffic stop and found a .22- caliber short barreled Rohn firearm in her purse.

When police attempted to arrest her on the gun charge, she resisted and officers used mace to restrain her.

She now faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest.

She had also been charged with child endangering because she had her young daughter in the car with her. However, that charge was dropped when a judge failed to see probable cause.

She's being held on a $2,000 bond.
