BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck woman is accused of being drunk with a 6-year-old boy in her custody.
Thirty-two-year-old Mary Jo Spalding faces a felony child abuse or neglect charge that carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison. Court documents do not list an attorney for her and a home telephone listing could not be found.
The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1GGftxH ) that bystanders at a Mandan bar-restaurant on Saturday night talked Spalding out of driving and got her a cab to take the child to his custodial parent.
Police officers who said Spalding was unable to walk without assistance later arrested her.
