Grandmother charged after 3-year-old boy found wandering



Published: Tue, April 19, 2011 @ 12:16 p.m.

BENSALEM, Pa. (AP) — A suburban Philadelphia grandmother is facing endangerment charges after a passing motorist found her 3-year-old grandson wandering down a road.

Bensalem police say 48-year-old Lisa McLawhorn was highly intoxicated when they arrested her Monday.

Investigators say McLawhorn told officers she had been watching the boy and her 9-month-old granddaughter when the boy went to watch TV.

Officers say a motorist soon saw the boy and alerted police, who said McLawhorn didn’t know the boy was missing until officers arrived at her door.

Police say McLawhorn had a blood-alcohol level of 0.135 at the time of her arrest. She is in jail on $50,000 bail.

Thank God that the little boy wasn't hurt--- or worse. The woman is a poor excuse for a grandmother when she puts alcohol before her grandchildren. And what about the childrens' parents?
