Insanely Drunk Woman Tries To Pick Up Child From School: Cops

A Florida mom's blood-alcohol level was more than five times the legal limit when she drove to an elementary school to pick up a child, police say.

Renata Congleton, 27, registered a .413 BAC after she was arrested, but not before she allegedly attacked officers and smashed up her vehicle, according to WFLA.

The mayhem began when she arrived at Trinity Elementary School in New Port Richey Friday afternoon. School officials wouldn't let the child -- who was not identified -- leave with Congleton because she appeared "extremely drunk," Fox Tampa reports. Instead, they called police, but Congleton fled before they arrived.

She allegedly careened into two other vehicles on her way home. Officers tracked her down a short time later. She's accused of kicking and scratching arresting officers before they took her to the ground.

She was slapped with charges of child neglect, battery on an officer, and resisting arrest. Bond was set at $15,000.
