Earlier this week, emergency dispatch received a phone call from a four-year-old New Jersey girl reporting that her father had passed out while operating a motor vehicle.
The young girl made the call after her father had stopped the car containing both of them and proceeded to pass out. When officers arrived on scene around 9:30 p.m., they discovered the father, Jamil Graham, intoxicated and in possession of a half-empty bottle of vodka. Graham later failed field sobriety tests and was later arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Thankfully, no one was injured as the result of the careless acts of the father though it is unimaginable how afraid the child must have been after seeing her father pass out. Even though it was a holiday weekend, drinking responsibly is still necessary – especially when there are young children involved.
