child-care idiot of the day
A Mississippi woman was arrested Monday night at a Louisiana rest stop after passing out drunk in a parked car carrying five children--two of her own and three she was supposed to be babysitting in Picayune, Mississippi, more than 20 miles away from the rest stop.
One of the children, a seven-year-old girl, used a borrowed cell phone to call 911. The woman was found slumped over the steering wheel Sunday and the car was still running, according to police. Her blood-alcohol level registered 0.27 on a breath test, well over the 0.10 limit, the report said. Deputies said they had to subdue the woman with pepper spray when she became "combative," and she remained jailed Monday.
The children were not hurt.
