5-Year-Old Drives Drunk Mom Home

This story appauls me.

Are you kidding me? Not only should this child get a reward for not killing himself, his brother, and his mother, but he needs some counseling about his mother’s behavior.

Holly Schnobrich was arrested Tuesday for letting her child drive her home while she was blazingly drunk and high on pills. A neighbor saw the woman’s car rip around the corner and saw that the woman’s 5-year-old son was behind the wheel. When the neighbor questioned the intoxicated woman about the child driving, the drunk responded, “He’s a good driver.” For the love of God…

When the police questioned the woman, she said that she was driving a friend home and insisted the person was in the car. No such person was – only the 5-year-old and his 3-year-old brother.

I only hope that the welfare of the children is being closer examined by the state.
