You know you have family issues when all family members are arrested in the same night for substance abuse. This far fetched scenario actually happened in East Fishkill, NY recently, as hard as it may seem to believe.
Officers at a checkpoint operated between midnight and 5 a.m. Sunday stopped a vehicle after observing marijuana paraphenalia inside, police said. The vehicle was occupied by two 18-year-old boys and two 15-year-old girls, all of whom live in Hopewell Junction
Parents of all four teens were called to pick up their children, but the 46-year-old mother of one of them was observed to be intoxicated upon her arrival, police said. The 46-year-old was arrested and the teen-ager was released to another adult at the scene, police said.
Two hours later, the same childâ€™s father, a 45-year-old Hopewell Junction resident, drove through the checkpoint and was observed to be intoxicated, police said.
At least they can all have some together time in the drunk tank? Maybe talk about some possible therapy options? Or maybe just where to get a beer after they’re released.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
