Lady Jailed For Breastfeeding While Driving Drunk
Cateria Thomas is nothing if not a multitasker. According to police they pulled over the 33-year-old from New Smyrna Beach, Florida for for an altered temporary tag and a child unrestrained. When officers approached the vehicle, they noticed Cateria was breastfeeding her 2-month-old baby. A full gas can was also in the front passenger seat. In the back seat were her three other children, ages 1, 3 and 4. Officers say Cateria had red watery and glassy eyes, her speech was slow and slurred and she failed a field sobriety test. She refused to perform a breathalyzer and she told officers she had four hamburgers with whiskey on them. All four children are now in custody of the state while their mother remains in jail on charges of unlawful alteration to her tag, operating with a suspended license, a child act that could result in physical or mental injury and DUI.
