Drunken Mom in Salem Trying to Drive Away With Kids in the Car is a Sad Story
On Tuesday night in Salem, a mother of three children was arrested for child endangerment as her children looked on. A bystander called police after trying to obtain Gina Suliveras' car keys from her as she was attempting to drive off with her children in the car. She was extremely intoxicated.
Suliveras was also charged with aggravated DWI and criminal threatening for telling the arresting police officer that she was a nurse and that if she ever had the option of treating him or his family that harm would come to them.
The most heartbreaking part? The oldest child begged the bystander not to call the police on their mother because they had supposedly already called their aunt to come pick them up. It just sounds like those kids have the weight of the world on their shoulders.
Not that I am condoning Suliveras' behavior, but I really feel sorry for her. What mother in her right mind would choose to drive drunk with her children in the car? This is something so desperate, so sad, that we all are capable of doing given the right conditions.
Did this story break your heart too?
