  • Children in the Car Seat of an Arrested Driver

    If you have reason to arrest a motorist and you arrest them, but they have a baby or toddler in the child safety seat, what is your jurisdiction's policy in such a circumstance with regards to the child?

    What is your personal policy?

    Driver is arrested and they are given an opportunity to call the other parent or trusted individual to pick up the child.

    If they can't do that, the child is taken into custody by SRS.

    Given the story, I would say the mother is full of BS and there was another deputy there. I know in my department, someone would be fired for leaving a 2 year old unsupervised.

          What a piece of junk journalism! As far as we can tell from the story, 3 weeks later, the car and the kid are still sitting by the side of the road. That being said, the Sheriff's office doesn't seem to be doing a good job defending itself.

            I know, the local news isn't very good at all. Makes me miss New York. Local news in New York is international news.

            Local news in San Antonio.....is local news.

                Turn the kids over to a responsible adult or Children's Services.
