A Florida woman was found passed out on pain pills in her car while her son played inside a Deltona McDonald's, sheriff's deputies told the News-Journal.

Deputies were called to the fast-food chain location after two women found Jessica Jones, 28, allegedly slumped over the steering wheel of her car in the parking lot. Cops say they found oxycodone and the anti-anxiety drug alprazolam when they searched her.

Meanwhile, her 8-year-old son was in the restaurant's play area unattended. Witnesses told cops that they saw Jones go into the McDonald's and buy the boy a Happy Meal before retreating to her car.

When she awoke, Jones allegedly had slurred speech, and cops noticed a pill on her floorboard. She was charged with child neglect and two counts of prescription pill possession.

Sadly, crimes at or involving McDonald's are a dime a dozen.

In February, a Pennsylvania man was arrested after he allegedly stabbed his brother several times over a McDonald's brownie. And in October 2011, a cashier was caught on camera beating two female customers who had jumped over the counter to fight the worker over their food order.
