After a Northwest Indiana mother was arrested for drunken driving early Saturday morning with her 1-year-old son in her minivan, three more family members came to take custody of the child, but police said there was a problem: They had all been drinking.

The toddler's mother, Kelli M. Thompson, 24, of Crown Point, was charged with felony endangering the life of a child while driving intoxicated after she was pulled over about 12:45 a.m. on U.S. Highway 30, police said. Police told her she could call someone to pick up the child.

The child's father was first to come, but when he arrived, police said they discovered he, too, was drunk and arrested him for misdemeanor operating while intoxicated and driving on a suspended license. The father, Robert Dereamer, 23, of Merrillville, was taken to Lake County Jail where his wife was also being held.

Next, the baby's grandparents showed up. Both of them also had been drinking, state police said, but the grandmother who was driving was not over the legal limit, so police escorted them home with the child.


Det. Shavedlongcock:

The father's last name is Dereamer?... Not going to touch that one. Not a sober person in this family, amazing. But then again it was a Saturday night.
