COPPERAS COVE, Texas (USA Today/Yahoo) — A Texas mom allegedly left her infant in a running car while she took shots at a nightclub, police say.
When officers confronted Samantha Grace Vaughan early Sunday, she shouted racist slurs and eventually wound up smiling for a jail booking photo.
Copperas Cove police found Vaughan’s baby around 2 a.m. in the back of a Buick parked outside Trackside Night Club, according to an arrest affidavit. The baby, Riley, was sleeping in the unlocked car with the engine running, police wrote.
Once an officer brought Vaughan, 26, outside the club for questioning, she allegedly told them she only entered to use the restroom. Police could smell alcohol on her, however, and Vaughan told them she drank two shots. A breathalyzer test later that night determined her blood alcohol level was 0.148.
In John 3:19, Jesus said, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.” Proverbs 2 says that the wisdom of the Lord will “deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things, who leaves the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness, who rejoice to do evil and delight in the frowardness of the wicked.”
