From my local news:
"4-year-old Chattanooga boy caught sipping beer, wearing stolen dress; 'wants to go to jail where his daddy is'"
Only in Tennessee, my friends.
And yes, I KNOW that it's sad, on so many levels, and horrible and wrong... I just had to share that with somebody. It's like a scene from a Todd Solondz movie.
"CHATTANOOGA Tennessee investigators say a 4-year-old boy was found roaming his neighborhood in the night, drinking beer and wearing a little girl's dress taken from under a neighbor's Christmas tree.
The child's mother, 21-year-old April Wright, tells WTVC-TV the boy "wants to go to jail because that's where his daddy is." Wright says she and the boy's father are going though a divorce.
The boy, found outside his house in Chattanooga on Tuesday, was taken to a hospital and treated for alcohol consumption."
