Clara Gause, 35-year old mother, was arrested on Tuesday after she was found guzzling vodka while driving with her 2-year old son in the backseat. Her blood alcohol content was found to be at 0.291 (read very drunk).
A witness said she followed Clara Gause after Glause hit her truck in a parking lot at Raleigh Millington and Yale Rd. The witness flagged down officers and told them she watched as Glause tossed beer cans from her vehicle.
When police stopped Gause, they say they spotted a half empty bottle of vodka in the front seat and her two-year-old sitting in the back without a child safety seat.Source: raleigh-frayser.wmctv.com

Motherhood should not be taken for granted but taken as a privilege and responsibility. Makes you feel bad for the kid!
