A Florida woman is going to have to learn her lesson after being busted for driving drunk with her daughter in the passenger seat – and telling a cop that it was all part of her home schooling plan.
Shielah Jones had dragged her eight-year-old to the Swamp House Bar and Grill, where she was knocking back a few cold ones while, apparently, teaching the girl a lesson in the effects of alcohol on the liver. When an employee made a call complaining about an intoxicated person, Jones fled with her pupil.
An officer who stopped her for speeding smelled alcohol and tested the woman, who registered twice the legal limit for driving. Deputies didn't buy the home-schooling tale and arrested her, turning the girl over to a neighbor for safe keeping. (Daytona Beach News Journal)
