Mom arrested after driving off, forgetting infant on car roof

Published: Sun, June 3, 2012 @ 1:50 a.m.


Phoenix police have arrested a woman who allegedly drove off after forgetting that her 5-week-old baby was in a car seat on the roof of her vehicle.

Officer James Holmes said officers were called out early Saturday after witnesses found a child strapped in a safety seat in the middle of an intersection.

The boy wasn't hurt. He's now in the custody of Arizona Child Protective Services.

Authorities say the child's mother, 19-year-old Catalina Clouser, her boyfriend and their friends had been smoking marijuana earlier in the evening at a nearby park.

Upset that her boyfriend was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, police say Clouser went to the home of friends and smoked more marijuana.

Clouser left around midnight. Police say she apparently put the sleeping baby on the roof and drove off, forgetting he was there.

Not long ago I did something like this but I am 81 and it was not a baby. It was a glass gallon of Sun tea. I was driving slowly over the speed bumps in the MHP, a man came out of his yard waving wildly. He came over to the van, reached up and handed me the jar, I could not thank him enough. If I had driven out onto the 6 lane street and if fell off and broke, it could have caused an accident or at least, flat tires. I could have been arrested and fined and/or lost my driver"s license.
Too bad someone did not get this on video and sent it to World's Dumbest Drivers on TV
