A New Zealand mother who was more than DOUBLE the alcohol limit was pulled over by police yesterday afternoon going about 76mph with her two toddlers in the car and a sports bottle filled with wine.
“As the police officer approached the driver, a 45-year-old woman from Lower Hutt, it was apparent…(she) had consumed alcohol,” said Senior Sergeant Kris Burbery, officer in charge of the Central District Highway patrol.
Police said the driver told them she had been drinking since 11.30am that morning.
“Present in the vehicle was a sports drink bottle containing wine, which it appears that the driver was drinking from during her journey. The added concern was that in the vehicle at the time were two small children both under four years of age, and that this driver had travelled from Taranaki and was heading to Lower Hutt.”
Burbery said the circumstances were “a tragedy waiting to happen”.
“This was a wet and dark night…. I am of the opinion that my highway patrol officer possibly prevented a serious crash and saved someone be it the driver, the innocent children in the vehicle or some other road user from serious injury or death.”
The women will appear in Court later this month, on a drink-driving charge.
What if you were caught in the middle of a bank robbery, with fear and no conscious thinking how would you react? Jump in the robber’s getaway car and bolt out of there!? Well one Houston woman did just that. Her word’s “I was just thinking, ‘Just get out now and just duck, ‘cause they are going to shoot you,’” Blanca said. “And it was just going through my mind – ‘my children, my children.’”

HOUSTON — AHouston woman who was caught in the middle of a bank robbery said she was so scared, she ran and jumped into the nearest car she could find and took off.
But it just so happened, the car belonged to the suspects.
Blanca, a mother of four, said it happened while she was cashing a check at a Chase bank on I-10 east at Uvalde. All of a sudden, the masked, armed suspects stormed the building, and she split.
“I was just thinking, ‘Just get out now and just duck, ‘cause they are going to shoot you,’” Blanca said. “And it was just going through my mind – ‘my children, my children.’”
Blanca said she didn’t have much time to think, but she wasn’t staying around for whatever the suspects had planned.
“I went the other way like this and I just ran, and I kind of just ducked down and I pushed the first door and I threw a lady out of the way,” she said. “The first car I saw, I jumped in.”
She said the car was on, so she floored it, desperate to escape.
She said she drove a few miles from the bank, pulled into a parking lot, fell out of the car and ran into a Cricket store, screaming for help.
But what she didn’t know was, she’d just stolen the suspects’ getaway car – which police said the suspects had stolen from someone else.
“Then, they arrested me, and they said, ‘You’re the one that stole a stolen car.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, it was their car,’” Blanca said.
The FBI eventually cleared Blanca and said she was just a witness.
The robbers ended up getting away, but police said they had to carjack someone to do it. Fortunately, that driver wasn’t hurt – and neither was Blanca.
So this tops that video of the kid after the dentist by A LOT. If I ever have to get an arm cast in the future I pray my experience is half as good as this kid’s time in the hospital!
What guys typically take pictures of ARE way different then the same of a woman. Babies, hair cuts, the beach are just a few! What’s captured in the photo is what separates men from women…

Here’s the email I got from Jason. Can you help him?
I was driving and I saw her. She was standing right outside the Dairy Queen onTexas Ave.It was about 11:45 this morning. She had blonde hair in a pony tail, glasses and looked to be waiting on someone to come out of the DQ. I hope it wasn’t another guy she was there with. I really thought just by passing by, she was a wonderful person. I thought about turning around and stopping by to introduce myself but didn’t want to creep her out. I was wondering if anyone might know who she is. I would love to meet her.
- Thanks, Jason
