In Southfield, Michigan a young girl thought of a resourceful way to get her intoxicated mother off the street.
Fox Detroit has the details:
Police say her blood alcohol level was 0.25, more than three times the legal limit, after her nine-year-old daughter passed a note to a teller at a Bank of America branch in Southfield desperate for help.
“The little girl wrote … my mother is drunk and I don’t want to go with her, and the teller said this is a very unusual note, maybe I should act upon it,” said Southfield Police Chief Joseph Thomas.
When confronted by staff, the mother actually abandoned her daughter and took off alone in her car. Police promptly tracked her down.
Since then, the mother has agreed to attend rehab, although it probably won’t be enough to keep her out of jail.
As local media started looking into her background, they found a long history of DUI, reckless driving, and child endangerment. Yet somehow here she is driving around anyway.
You’re welcome for the system keeping those roads safe, folks.
