Kids Flee From Car Because Of Florida Mom's Alleged Drunk Driving

Gainesville PD

A Florida mom faces multiple charges after four kids leapt from her car, because they say she was drunk behind the wheel.

Angela Woodworth, 45, had her 11-year-old son and three of his friends in her car on Tuesday night, according to the Gainesville Sun. At about 8:30 p.m., the four children were seen running into a Steak ’n’ Shake in Gainesville.

The children, who witnesses said seemed terrified, told police that Woodworth was drunk and unable to keep control of her vehicle. They said that they jumped out of the car after she hit a pole.

Woodworth made it to the Steak ’n’ Shake shortly thereafter and allegedly screamed at the kids and followed them around inside the establishment, witness Josh Kramer told News4Jax.

Police say they found receipts confirming that Woodworth bought two pitchers of beer at a bowling alley and four other drinks at a Ruby Tuesday restaurant.

She was arrested and charged with felony child neglect, marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting an officer without violence. She was not, however, charged with driving under the influence.
