Houston, TX – A drunk pregnant woman in Houston is facing multiple charges after she stumbled into a tattoo parlor looking to get pierced.
Police say that at around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, 20-year-old Stephanie Santana, who is 7-months pregnant, pulled up to a tattoo parlor and stumbled inside to see how long it would take to get a piercing.
Santana needed it done in a hurry because she was a responsible, drunk, pregnant woman driving in the early morning hours with her 1-year-old daughter. Leaving her child unattended in the car for too long would just be bad parenting.
The employees, noticing she was drunk, told her that they would not be able to help her and told her to get out of the store. Police were called after an employee discovered the child in the car and mommy passed out in the driver’s seat with the car idling and the door wide open.
When police arrived, they found Santana still sleeping in the idling car with her daughter and woke her up. During their search of the vehicle, they found Xanax along with beer bottles in a diaper bag.
Santana was arrested and charged with child endangerment, DWI and possession of a controlled substance. Her child, who was uninjured, was placed into State Child Protective Services custody.
