No family members sober enough to bring infant home

Indiana State Police said a father who was called to pick up his 1-year-old after the mother’s arrest for drunken driving was also allegedly intoxicated.

Police said Kelli Thompson, 24, was charged with driving under the influence after police pulled her 1996 Dodge minivan over at 12:45 a.m. Saturday morning in Schererville, Indiana.

Thompson, whose 1-year-old son was in the car at the time she was pulled over, called the child’s father, Robert Dereamer, 23, to take the boy home. However, police said he also allegedly had been driving under the influence when he arrived at the scene.

Dereamer was charged with operating while intoxicated and driving while suspended.

Officers said they phoned the child’s grandparents, who had also been drinking before they arrived at the scene. They were escorted home by Schererville police.

Phew! Does this little kid stand a chance?
