A phone call had been made to the police when a resident noticed a car running with children inside in front of their home. Police arrived to fine a Florida Mother passed out drunk with her kids and nephew in the backseat of the car.
The children were crying an hungry police said. Joann Martinez said she had been drinking tequila at a family gathering and felt sleepy. Martinez is being charged with child neglect Martinez is now being held on 15,000 dollars bond.
Monday Martinez went before a judge. The children are staying with their Grandmother.
I will say at least she pulled over and it wasn’t another tragedy like what happed to little Leandra Rosado in NY where she was in the car with a mother driving drunk. Little Leandra was thrown to her death after the car wrecked.
