Grandma arrested for driving with child on roof

Associated Press

Thu Aug 7, 7:54 PM ET

Authorities say a grandmother was arrested for driving around the parking lot of a Marathon grocery store with her 3-year-old child sitting on the roof of the car.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to the Publix store Tuesday and arrested a 54-year-old woman after she was driving around with her three-year-old granddaughter on the roof of her car.

The grandmother was released from jail 15 hours later.

The woman said Thursday she would never let anything hurt her granddaughter. She says she was driving at "snail-speed" and holding the child's leg.

Authorities say the woman told police she was giving the child some air and letting her have fun.

She faces charges of child abuse. The child is back with her mother.

I have an idea. She faces charges of child abuse and, since you can't fix stupid, let's save the taxpayers some money and just strap Grandma to the roof of a police car. Whoopie. Let's go on a high speed chase. Loads of fun.

Yep, she's an idiot.

I once thought it would be cool to sit on a hood of a friends car, with a group of my other friends and drive around the school parking lot really fast. It was fun until, my friend hit the break because of an on coming car and we flew off the car. I broke my tail bone and almost got hit by another car. However, my excuse was that I was 15. Not a grandmother who should know better.

Thanks for posting, Scary. We all did really stupid things when we were teenagers. It was the age of the child (3 years old) that really struck me when I read the article.

side note: Why are all the nuts in/from Florida? Not just something like this, but the teachers who sleep with their students like Debra Lafave, the child murderers like John Couey & Joseph Smith, the serial killers like Ted Bundy & Aileen Wournas, the moms who kill their children & make up stories like Melinda Duckett & Casey Anthony (she must be guilty!)
