Sad But True - News

Florida mom buckled in beer before baby
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (UPI) -- A Florida mother was arrested after police found her driving with beer buckled in the front seat but her toddler unrestrained in the back seat, a report said.

Tina D. Williams, 46, faces charges of drunken driving, child abuse, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving without a license after officers stopped her for running a red light Sunday, the Jacksonville Florida Times-Union reported Tuesday.
Amber Tedrick, 20, reportedly was in the back seat of the car next to Williams' unrestrained 16-month-old daughter. When police asked Williams, who smelled of alcohol, why the toddler was not buckled in, she said she did not know, a police report said.
Police reportedly found a 24-pack of Busch beer buckled into the passenger seat and two pipes typically used for drug purposes in Williams' purse.
Williams was held in the St. Johns County Jail in lieu of $31,000 bail, the newspaper said.
