Child in Car Called 911, Reported Drunk Mom

In New York, a 49-year-old woman driving drunk, with two of her kids in the car, was arrested, after her 12-year-old daughter called 911 from the car and remained on the phone with a 911 dispatcher until police pulled woman over.

A panicked girl made repeated calls to 911 Sunday night to report her mother for drunk driving on I-84. The girl called for help from the confines of Jamie Hicks's green Buick, telling the dispatcher that her mom was drunk and was swerving into other lanes. WCBS reports, 'The dispatcher heard lots of screaming and yelling and said the girl claimed her mom was hitting her, and there were multiple hang-ups.' But you've got to expect that when you narc out mommy for being boozy behind the wheel. "

The 12 year old did what the mother did not; the kid used common sense. She may face the slurs from the very few who may accuse her of ratting out of her.mom. Maybe because this little girl called 911, her mom, her sister and herself are still alive.
