Parenting FAIL: Drunk Mom Passes Out in Middle of the Street with Her 3-Year-Old

Do Not Pass Out in the Road - Especially With Your Kid!

It’s one thing to get so wasted that you decide to take a nap on the asphalt in the middle of the road, but it quickly rises to WTF territory when the napper has their toddler by their side. But that’s just what happened when the oddly/appropriately named Michelle McFall reportedly opted to fall into a drunken slumber with her 3-year-old son on a road in Indianapolis.

What’s even worse? According to reports, she was right outside her house! The cops came and woke her up at 3:15 a.m and they noted that she smelled of booze and her behavior was of questionable as well, as she went “lunging at medics and shouting profanities as they tried to check on her toddler.” The toddler was thankfully unharmed. The woman claims, “she was not in the middle of the road and she and her son were fine and were resting,” a police report says.  But her definition of “fine” is debatable. According to the New York Daily News, “a breathalyzer showed her blood alcohol level was 0.225 percent, nearly three times over the 0.08 percent limit for a person considered legally intoxicated.” She says she doesn’t recall what happened, but had spent the evening drinking and arguing at her her ex’s house (who had dropped the duo off).

McFall has been charged with being drunk in public and child neglect.  Her son has been taken into custody by the Department of Child Services.

Let’s hope that McFall doesn’t continue her falling from good sense.
