Drunk Woman In Minnesota Takes Breastfeeding To A Whole New Level0
Over the past few years, breastfeeding has become a hotly debated topic. Most people believe women should be able to freely breastfeed their children anywhere and everywhere. Others insist there is a time and place for everything. Almost everyone will agree with the latter when it comes this 40-year-old mother in Rochester, Minnesota.
On Monday, 40-year-old Tasha L. Schleicher of Rochester was charged with felony first-degree drunk driving, child endangerment and driving without a valid license. At this point in time, the defendant remains behind bars with a $25,000 bail. Authorities allege that the defendant had five children in her vehicle when she veered into a median cable barrier at a high speed.
Besides the five children in the vehicle, the defendant has five other children as well. When police arrived at the scene, they discovered Schleicher breastfeeding her baby. As soon as the deputy made contact with the defendant, they smelled alcohol and the woman’s speech was noticeably slow and slurred.
Schleicher received a preliminary breath test roughly two hours after hitting the barrier. At that time, her blood alcohol content was 0.17 percent, which is more than twice the legal limit in Minnesota. This is not the first time Schleicher has been in trouble with the law for drunk driving.
In the past ten years, Schleicher has racked up three drunken driving convictions. She has also been charged with possessing marijuana and giving an office a false name. Even feminists will agree that Schleicher selected the worst possible time and place to breastfeed her baby.
