PALM BAY, Fla. - Palm Bay police arrested a grandmother they say was chaperoning an elementary school field trip at Wonder Works while intoxicated.
Kathryn Wright, 58, has been charged with disorderly intoxication and battery. Another chaperone told police that while on a Lockmar Elementary School field trip on Thursday, Wright was using profane language and was falling down on the bus with children present.
Wright then shoved and shouted profanities at the other chaperone as she tried to help keep Wright calm, according to the report. The other chaperones said the incident scared the other children on the bus.
Police said Wright couldn't stand or walk when paramedics arrived and was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
When she was questioned by authorities, Wright said she drank two bottles of diluted vodka and threw them in the trash. Police said they found the empty water bottles, which smelled like alcohol.
She was taken to Brevard County jail.
Grandma is a mean drunk.
Good grief...she looks 70.
Now if it was a high school field trip...
If someone had stomped on your face ‘til the flesh fell off, you’d be mean too!
Looks like Carl Levin in a wig. I’d be drunk too.
Glad to see the Elementary School does a background check on chaperones.
What a disgrace!!!
What is it about Florida?
Is it the lack of winter, the threat of hurricanes, the flat landscape, the lunatic population,...
Well, that is just mean to have the floor so waxy.
The sad thing is that somewhere on that bus was this person’s grandchild.
at least she wasn’t driving the bus.
If it was vodka, they smelled nothing and they are liars.
That being said, grandma needs to be fired first, then in rehab.
I wish she was a lot blurrier.
Once again, my home state of Florida proves its worth to the nation by providing more than its share of weirdness — in addition to its traditional merits of sunshine, warm winters, cheap retirement, and extreme weather stories.
“... was this person’s grandchild”.
The only good thing that can come out of this hot mess is the parents of the child now fully realize that Grandma is an alcoholic. I hope they don’t let Grammy babysit.
58? It ain’t the years, it’s the mileage.
Grease trap theory
All the whack jobs go there because its warm
Once there can not go any farther.......
One of my main men lives in Palm Bay. His daughter died a couple of years ago, leaving a 5-year old daughter. So my pal and his wife adopted their granddaughter to keep the child’s father from taking her. They send their granddaughter to a Catholic school in Palm Bay to avoid just this type of situation.
Maybe kids are more sensitive today, but when I was a kid, everyone would have thought of this as hysterically funny.
You don’t fuss with Ma none, hear?!
I was thinking the same thing. Poor kid.
Heck, that face should scare liberals more than an AR 15!!
Damn she does look like Levin, minus the stupid spectacles that he wears and plus the hair!
Good grief...she looks 70.
I know any number of 70 somethings that do not even begin to resemble that woman. What a life she must have had.
God bless you and keep you, FRiend.
