Not every mother is going to be Mom of the Year, but this one isn't even especially good at being a bad mom.
A woman in Cobb County was arrested after getting drunk at a movie theater after sneaking in an alcoholic beverage … in her 5-year-old's sippy cup.
To make matters worse, her 5-year-old child was with her at the time.
Kristina Gibson is now facing misdemeanor reckless conduct and public intoxication charges following an incident on a Friday afternoon.
According to an arrest warrant, "Gibson filled her 5-year-old son's sippy cup with a strong alcoholic beverage."
Judging by the fact that she got so very intoxicated, it almost sounds like she was drinking straight liquor, but that is just speculation.
The warrant continues: "and became intoxicated in the theater."
It is also believed that she may have taken a central nervous system depressant at the same time — which may have interacted with the alcohol.
The Friday incident took place at the Merchants Walk Stadium Cinemas in Cobb County.
She allegedly used her son's sippy cup to smuggle in the alcoholic beverage, but there is thankfully no indication that her son had any of it.
The warrant accuses Gibson of becoming "unable to walk, talk, or care" for him.
Her son's cries then alerted moviegoers, who notified theater employees who then contacted police.
Thankfully, the staff at the theater prevented Gibson from entering her car to drive away with her son.
It sounds like that could have been catastrophic.
When police arrived, an officer tried to zip Gibson's purse, presumably to prevent its contents from spilling.
This is when Gibson allegedly told the officer "I will (expletive) kill you."
Don't do that, folks.
Gibson was not immediately arrested, but was instead taken to the hospital by police, who were concerned about her level of intoxication.
Only after she arrived at the hospital and was no longer perceived to be a threat to anyone was the arrest warrant filed.
A family friend picked up her 5-year-old son from the theater.
Gibson remained in the hospital for nearly a week before being released.
At that point, she was arrested and booked in Cobb County Jail.
She was released on bail for $ 1,000.
It is still unclear if she actually took the drugs described as prescription central nervous system depressants.
That sounds to us like a benzodiazepine — which, as we all know, can become dangerous when combined with alcohol.
That would explain how someone (especially someone who may be an experienced drinker) could become intoxicated on a sippy cup's worth of alcohol.
As one fellow moviegoer put it: "We go to the movies to have a good time! But … that's not the way to do it."
The issue here is not with a woman finding a creative way to smuggle alcohol into a theater, but endangering her son and potentially other drivers in the process.
Though … we should point out that a sippy cup is a terrible way to smuggle in a drink. Like, flasks exist.
Even if this is one of those creepy theaters where they search people's bags, there had to be a way for her to indulge herself without involving her son.
It really sounds like this woman was not thinking straight.
