MADD (Moms Actively Drunk Driving)


Sad night....24 year old female was drunk at around 10 pm Friday night. She was driving around 50 mph in a residential neighborhood and drove into a house. When EMS got there, they noticed an 8 month old baby in the back seat. To make matters worse, mommy was so drunk she couldn't figure out how to strap her child in properly.


There's more....no drivers license, no insurance. And...this was her 2nd DWI! Instead of asking about her baby, she asked me to call her boyfriend, who was still at the party. Instead I called CPS and the Police.


Alcohol level.....194.


The baby is ok, thank God.

i hope the baby finds his/her way to a safe home.

at this point, it seems any home would be better than staying with the mother.

And yet SHE can have kids. *sigh*

This is so sad and maddening at the same time. Sad that this young mother has to get help because a judge makes her, not because she knows how precious her child is and is not facing her responsibility as a driver sharing the roads with other people.

I said get the baby placed in a nice home and mandatory hysterectomy for the mother.

Mandatory sterilization for Mom. Kid should be placed in another home, with NO HOPE of Mom ever getting it back.

Eh. 194 is nothing impressive to me anymore. I've got regulars that we bet on on their BAC.

NOw this crap with her baby, that is not acceptable. Hopefully the kid doesn't fall through the CPS cracks. Kids like that just don't have a chance if they can't get out.
