Sloshed in Schererville
In the news business, we see reports fairly regularly about a person being pulled over and found to be driving drunk with one of their kids in the car. It's the height of irresponsibility. Usually, the driver ends up in jail, and the child is turned over to a relative or child-services officials. If police in Schererville, Ind., thought it was going to be that easy early Saturday when they pulled over a 24-year-old woman who allegedly was driving drunk with her 1-year-old son in the car, they thought wrong. After arresting the woman, the cops called the boy's father to come fetch him. Just one problem. He showed up drunk at the police station and also was charged with DUI. OK, time to get the grandparents on the horn. Again, a problem. When the grandparents arrived, it was determined that they, too, had been downing a few. The only bright spot was that the grandmother, who was driving, was not (yet) over the legal limit, so the officers let her drive back home while they followed her with the poor kid in the police cruiser. All I can say is, what a family.
