Drunk Michigan Woman Crashes Car With 9-Year-Old in Back Seat
We hear about drunk drivers all the time, it's usually after they got into an accident or got arrested for their irresponsible actions. Not very often do we hear about a parent driving drunk with their child in the car as well. I'm sure it happens more often than we think though.
A Michigan mother was recently arrested in Royal Oak after she crashed her car while under the influence. Not only did she crash her car but she did it with her 9-year-old sitting in the backseat.
According to WDIV, when police arrived, they found the 33-year-old Roseville woman who crashed into the back of another vehicle smelled of intoxicants and was slurring her speech.
Police found an open beer in the car along with her 9-year-old daughter. What kind of lowlife scumbag drives drunk with their child in the car? This is honestly one of the most selfish things someone can do. It's one thing to risk your own life, not to mention others on the road but to have your child in the car with you is downright disgraceful.
The woman was arrested for operating under the influence, child endangerment and open alcohol.
I believe in second chances for sure but for some reason, I feel like this isn't the first time this has happened. I'm sure this is just the first time she was caught.
It doesn't sound like anyone was injured in the accident including the 9-year-old child.
