BrandyTAMPA BAY, Fla. — A mother was arrested Thursday night after her 10-year-old boy was allegedly found wandering a Florida neighborhood drunk and naked.

According to the Huffington Post, 31-year-old Nedra Byrd was arrested and faces charges of child neglect. A couple noticed the woman’s son nude wandering through a Spring Hill, Fla., neighborhood.

“He was so intoxicated he didn’t realize that he didn’t have any clothes on,” one of the couple allegedly told a local news station.

Police found the woman passed out in her home, the Huffington Post reported. A half-drunk bottle of Brandy was in the boy’s room. Bloodwork done on the child showed his blood-alcohol level at .108, above the legal limit for driving.

Byrd was released from jail on a $1,000 bond following her arrest, reports state.

    It was a point to say how drunk this boy was and to point out the legal limits of driving while intoxicated. Learn to understand what you are reading Kehbeen

    I agree with Kehbeen, 10 year olds should not be driving ESPECIALLY drunk!!! And I also think people named Donald should not be allowed to get sarcasm, instead they should respond by being condescending…Oh and technically the legal limit for anyone under 18 is .02….so he was FIVE TIMES the legal limit!!! Which offers no relevant information or changes the story whatsoever…BUT FIVE TIMES!!!!

    i agree… i dont think the kid was driving but using that as a reference to get an idea of how much alcohol was in his system. its really a sad story.
