The family that drinks together, stays together. That stay is usually at the local jail, because they are all under arrest for being drunk.
Officers at a checkpoint operated between midnight and 5 a.m. Sunday stopped a vehicle after observing marijuana paraphenalia inside, police said. The vehicle was occupied by two 18-year-old boys and two 15-year-old girls. Parents of all four teens were called to pick up their children, but the 46-year-old mother of one of them was observed to be intoxicated upon her arrival, police said. The 46-year-old was arrested and the teen-ager was released to another adult at the scene, police said.
Always good thinking to go to the police station drunk. Anyway, the hi-jinx don’t stop there because let’s not forget about the father.
Two hours later, the same child’s father, a 45-year-old Hopewell Junction resident, drove through the checkpoint and was observed to be intoxicated, police said.
So either the entire family is littered with morons or this town is a mile long with only one road.
“There is a police checkpoint on Main Street this weekend. If you’re drinking stay clear.”
“I forget, which one is Main Street?”
“The one that leads in and out of town. The only street we have.”
“You’re gonna have to be more specific, I’m drunk.”
Eventually, they ran out of sober family members to bail them out.
