When relatives of an Indiana mother came to pick up her 1-year-old child after she had been charged with DUI and child endangerment, they set off the irony alarms.
Kelli M. Thompson, 24, of Crown Point was charged with endangering the life of a child while driving intoxicated after she was pulled over about 12:45 a.m. on U.S. Highway 30, police said. Police told her she could call someone to get the child.
The child’s father was first to come, but when he arrived, police said, they discovered he, too, was drunk and charged him with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and driving on a suspended license. Robert Dereamer, 23, of Merrillville was taken to Lake County Jail, where his wife was also being held.
Next, the baby’s grandparents showed up. Both of them also had been drinking, police said, but the grandmother who was driving was not over the legal limit, so police escorted them home with the child.
