Dude, Stupidity at its finest...

Brandi Lowe

A Port St. Lucie woman was arrested Tuesday night after she brought her toddler and baby to a bar and then tried to drive home drunk.

 

Brandi Lowe, 22, was arrested on DUI and child abuse charges.

 

Fort Pierce police were called to JoJo's Raw Bar & Grill after numerous patrons complained Lowe was at the bar drinking with her 6-month-old and 2-year-old children.

 

According to the arrest report, when officers arrived they saw Lowe crossing the street with her two children and got into her car. Police stopped her before she drove off.

 

Patrons told police the 2-year-old boy was taking large cups of something from the bar, attempting to drink them and spilling them all over him. Patrons also said Lowe let the boy run around and scream in the bar while the baby was in a basinet on a bar stool.

 

A bartender told police he served Lowe two beers and a shot, but when he asked her to pay, she fell over the bar stool and onto the floor. He said the toddler seemed tired and was crying but that Lowe just wanted another drink.

 

According to the report, Lowe left a baby rattle that was shaped like a hammer at the bar. A patron told police, "The baby played with the hammer while mama got hammered."

 

Police said the children were sleeping in the car. They were placed in the custody of the Department of Children and Families.

wow, man some people are really strange. I wonder why you would even want your kids at a bar with you.

ya know these things happen a lot. I used to work in casinos when I was young (20s) and we were always calling cops because people would come in and gamble leaving young kids in their cars while they gambled. I happened to step out once to smoke and noticed it, after that we made a habit of stepping out periodicly and reporting people leaving kids in their cars so they can gamble and drink... Sad I know.

This is why I say there are some people that just aren't meant to be parents.  This woman is just plain stupid.  Hopefully those two little ones get put in a home with people who actually give a shit.

It was probably a bar and grill... like how Applebees is. There are a lot of those in that area.

ETA: NOT that that makes the situation any better. But I'm just saying like it probably wasn't some bar she wandered into and the bar tender didn't say anything about the children not supposed to be in there. It was probably a restaurant as well.

But the woman needs help.

I agree, she was stupid for bringing them and the person at the bar should have not served her but told her to take her kids home.

I don't get why you'd want to bring your kids to the bar in the first place.
