Florida Mother Forces 4-Year-Old to Blow into Breathalyzer to Start Car After Drinking at a Bar

April King, 35, has been charged with child neglect after leaving her two children, ages two and four, in the parking lot while she went into a bar to drink some beer.

And that’s not even the worst part.

King, who was recently released from rehab, forced her four-year-old son to blow into a breathalyzer to start the car after she was done drinking at Froggers Grill and Bar in Apopka, Florida.

The footage above, captured by an officer’s body cam, appears to show the child covering up his mom’s bad behavior.

According to police, her husband, Doug, installed the breathalyzer in the vehicle because she has a serious drinking problem.

“My son just turned 4 years old and the fact that he learned how to do that, I don’t put the intelligence behind him one bit but to learn to hum and blow at the same time, it was a surprise to me,” he explained.

The father is refusing to bail out his wife after the incident, and plans on taking their kids and moving back to Oklahoma.
