Crystal Walden (Myspace)
Portsmouth, NH–Crystal Walden has a problem. She lives all the way over in New Hampshire and her abusive ex lives all the way over in Texas. Crystal wants reconciliation. With little money and no vehicle, Crystal has quite a dilemma on her hands. What’s a girl to do?
I know! How about you drag your drunk ass over to the nearest TA truck stop, knock on the door of the first semi you come across, and offer up some good lovin’ in exchange for a ride? Yeah. And, while you’re at it, how about you drag your 10-year-old son along with you for the ride? And what do ya know, that’s exactly what she did!
Police found a 10-year-old boy wandering around the truck stop at about 10:30 Saturday night. It was freezing cold and the kid was without a coat and shoes. When asked where his mother was, the child replied, ‘She’s in a truck having sex with the driver.’ The kid had jumped out of the semi after mommy and the truck driver started in on the horizontal bump. Can’t say I blame him. The boy said his mother took him out in the cold after arguing with his grandmother, and they hitched a ride to the truck stop.
Authorities soon found Crystal and her new love interest. Her pants were on inside out and she appeared intoxicated. The truck driver confirmed the boy’s story. Crystal had knocked on the door of his truck and asked for a ride to Texas. The driver has happy to oblige, if Crystal was willing to put out.
At her arraignment on Tuesday, Crystal hysterically stated to the judge, ‘I got drunk on Saturday and went to the truck stop…it’s only because I was drinking tequila! I’m really, really sorry and I promise I won’t drink again! Please don’t take away my babies.’ She claimed she was new to the area and had no idea how cold it could get. I think you would have a pretty good idea how cold it is outside once you walk outside, right?
Crystal Walden is being charged with two misdemeanor counts of child endangerment. One count for not having the child properly dressed for the cold weather and another count for having sex in view of the child. Another charge of interference with custody is expected to be filed. Crystal disobeyed Texas court orders which gave custody of her children to her mother. That order was violated when Walden attempted to flee the state with the trucker. Her bail is set at $2,500. If bail is made, she is to have no unsupervised contact with her children. It is not known if the truck driver will also face charges.
Kudos to Crystal’s mother! She appeared at the arraignment and stated to the judge that Crystal was not allowed to return to her home if she made bail. Grandma is concerned about the safety of the children because of her daughter’s drinking and foul language.
