Driving Intoxicated With an Infant

Posted on Updated on

30-year-old Latonya Kirven was arrested Tuesday in Galveston, Texas  for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and driving while intoxicated with a child in her vehicle. This woman apparently got wasted, got behind the wheel and decided it was a good idea to run over a 75-year old man, followed by driving her car into a bayou.

Witnesses said that they saw her arguing with the man before running him over, so clearly she was in a rage when she did it. I don’t think I will ever understand how it is that someone can take an infant and put them in a car after they have been drinking. At all.  Even after a single beer I won’t drive period.  I am aware that it is a little overkill but I am just terrified that that would be the one time I did something irresponsible and then I would have to live with that guilt for the rest of my life.

Fortunately there were people there who were willing to run in to save the baby. This would definitely fall under one of the worst hangovers to wake-up with…..
