With the popularity of Twitter feeds like _FloridaMan highlighting the collective idiocy of Florida men, a young hero emerges as the future King of Florida.
Police say that Nedra Byrd, 31, is the young boy’s mother. She was arrested on charges of child abuse after a neighbor found the kid roaming their Spring Hill, Fla. neighborhood.
According to one of Byrd’s neighbors, the 10-year-old found his way over to their house nude and reeking of booze.
"He said, 'All I want for my mommy is to go to rehab and to get anger management because mommy drinks to feel better cause she's mad.'" neighbor Amanda Roesch told WTSP in Tampa Bay. "How do you not know your child is naked drunk and missing?"
Police say that upon confronting Byrd about the allegations, she responded, “Yeah, I’m drunk as hell” and was unaware that her son was no longer in his bedroom.
The boy’s blood-alcohol level came in at .108, well above state’s legal limit of .08 for driving under the influence.
The fourth-grader told police that it wasn’t his first time drinking alcohol. Seems like he needs to work harder at building up his tolerance.
