She was charged with abandoning a minor
A WOMAN was arrested in Malaga after she was seen walking the streets at around 11pm, obviously drunk, with a small child in tow.
Witnesses alerted the Local Police and followed the woman and her son, she had to be helped to stand on several occasions. When the police first saw them, she was attempting to cross the road with the six-year-old boy in a dangerous area.
When the officers got them to safety, they confirmed that the woman was very drunk and almost incapable of holding a conversation with them.
After a while, she was able to tell them that she had been living in a room in a shared flat, but she had been forced to leave.
She was taken to the nearest police station and a relative was called in to take care of the child.
They also learned that she had another son, 13, who had called his father saying that he had escaped because he was hungry and couldn’t enter his home.
The woman was taken to a health centre and later arrested, charged with temporarily abandoning a minor. The six-year-old told the police that he hadn’t eaten for a long time and he was hungry.
According to local Spanish daily Diario Sur, the woman was frequently seen drinking in bars with either one of her sons. When she was searched, she was also found to be carrying drugs.
