She Buckled Up Beer, Not Baby
Tina Williams, who police say buckled up her case of beer when she drove under the influence of alcohol - but not the baby girl in the back seat.

A woman driving drunk on a Florida highway had safely buckled up a case of Busch beer for a Super Bowl party—but not the year-old baby riding in the back of her car, according to police. The woman was pulled over after she ran a red light and was seen driving erratically near St. Augustine, reports First Coast News.

The deputy who walked to her car window noticed a case of beer in the front seat and belted in place. When she was asked why the baby girl in the back seat was not restrained, the driver answered: "I don't know." She told the deputy she'd never held a license and was running out of gas. It wasn't immediately clear if the baby was the woman's child. (More drunk driving stories.)
