LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A Lancaster grandmother faces drunk driving charges Tuesday after she was found dragging one of her young grandchildren off the side of her vehicle in a local park.

Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. Parks Bureau responded to calls at 4:40 p.m. on Monday afternoon at Apollo Park in Lancaster about a drunk driver allegedly dragging a juvenile from her vehicle.

The deputies later located Marie Shipley, 55, at her home and discovered she was visibly intoxicated and had been drinking beer, said Deputy Paul Schrader.

Shipley had allegedly gotten into an argument with her three male juvenile grandchildren while driving in the park, Schrader said.

After she yelled at them to stop, the boys between the ages of 7 and 13 jumped out of the moving car. When Shipley slowed down, one of the grandchildren attempted to re-enter the vehicle, said Schrader.

Once Shipley accelerated, the boy fell to the ground and was injured. When she heard his cry of pain, Shipley stopped the car, regathered the grandchildren and drove them back to their home, Schrader said.

Shipley’s daughter later drove the injured child to a local hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries to his arms.

Shipley was arrested for felony driving under the influence and was booked and released at Lancaster Station. Parks Bureau detectives are investigating the incident.

    Fear in the air, tension everywhere
    Unemployment rising fast,
    The Beatles’ new record’s a gas
    And the only safe place to live is
    On an indian reservation
    And the band played on
    Eve of destruction, tax deduction
    City inspectors, bill collectors
    Mod clothes in demand,
    Population out of hand
    Suicide, too many bills, hippies movin’
    To the hills
    People all over the world, are shoutin’
    End the war
    And the band played on.

    55! looks 85. Another news report says the other family members are shocked, and can’t wait for her to come home, probably so they can dump the kids on granny again. The other family members don’t believe it. This can’t be the first time she been drunk. Where were the parents at when all this was going on? probably just waking up from there own hangovers. This whole family is the TRUE meaning of the words —— WHITE TRAILER TRASH —— the only thing that will make this all the better is that they all live in the same home that is a trailer.
