Cops: Woman found drunk, asleep, with two kids in the car
An East Wareham woman was found drunk and asleep at the wheel with her engine running, her headlights on, and two kids asleep in the back seat, Carver police said.If you are so drunk that you can't negotiate a driveway, maybe it's time to admit you have a problem. What's infuriating is that this woman thought nothing of drinking to the point of passing out behind the wheel - with her kids in the car. She got so stinking drunk that she lost consciousness with the engine running, while her kids were still in the car.
Around 9:10 Saturday night, Carver police were called to Tremont Street where they said the woman, identified as Jennifer Bangs, 40, of east Wareham, had been seen driving her 2002 Mercury Sable in and out of a residential driveway in Carver.
Mother of the year right there, folks.
I don't understand that mentality, I really don't. My kids are the most important thing in the world to me. The idea that I would deliberately put them in unnecessary danger is so foreign to me. I'm also trying to figure out what happened - I'm sure she didn't take the kids to a bar, and I would like to think that a restaurant wouldn't serve a woman with two kids in tow enough alcohol to make her pass out in her car.
In any case, it will be interesting to see how light a slap on the wrist she gets - this is MA, after all...
That is all.
