Drunk breastfeeding leads to other charges

Woman Accused Of Breastfeeding Baby While Drunk:

This line from the article sets the tone nicely for the rest of the story…

Police said it started when Renee Vanalsburg punched her half-sister in the face.

You know it can only get better from there and of course it does. ‘Better’ being a relative word here because after police arrived at the scene they noticed that Vanalsburg was breastfeeding her baby while obviously drunk and high. The baby’s father, Marc Rush, was also arrested when police found a bottle of oxycodone and tin filled with an unnamed white powder in the baby’s crib.

Anybody want to take any guess what the mysterious white powder was? Since there was oxycodone I’m going to guess the powder was meth.

Anyway, also on the floor of the baby’s room was broken glass, knives, bug poison and spray paint.

Did I mention this happened in Florida? Florida always takes any crime story and takes it to a whole new level. Stay classy Sunshine State.

Thanks to Jinx for the tip.

    People it does not matter what part of the world your in, bad things happen in all parts of the world! It is these sick parents out there who don’t even care about themselves let alone a baby or child, people like these should not even been allowed to have children or raise children. All I care about is that poor baby and what she has went through.

    The white powder could have been baby formula…

    And I could be Barack Obama.

    I read some sick things in the newspaper, but I think all places have their share of filth and I don’t think I’ve seen the worst things from this site coming from FL. I have never met anyone that was screwed up, and I have lived here all my life. The worst I’ve come across are potheads, which Trent, I think kind of condones.
    Maybe it is the area of FL you visited.

    Thanks, as a Floridian I’m glad to see people have faith in us.

    If that were the case, then it would apparently be the ONLY age-appropriate thing that was in the baby’s room. But, even so, what were they expecting the baby to do with it – snort it? I believe you’re supposed to mix that kind of powder with water BEFORE giving it to the baby, aren’t you?

    I have lived in florida for 10 years and i agree. its amazing how many stories of kids getting beat, starved, left in cars, etc..and of course HRS does NOTHING. on the news they have warnings..to make sure you dont leave your child in the car put your purse or something important in the back..makes me sad and embarrassed to even admit that i live here

    I thought the same thing Michelle. The only things they were missing were rusty razor blades and some used syringes.


    I don’t care if I sound like I am stereotyping. But florida is FULL of trash. I lived there for over 4 years and I will not begin to get into the things I have seen. There are some good people, but I have never been anywhere as over run with sick gross people as florida. I am so glad this baby was saved before anything bad happened. How could any one be so stupid?!?! I hope florida sinks, with them on it. Get out now while you can!

    And to think, I was wracked with guilt the day I accidentally left a stuffed toy in the crib with my son when he took a nap! I was sure it was nothing short of a miracle that he hadn’t smothered and I cried for days over my “negligence.”

    Guess this mom subscribes to the philosophy of whatever doesn’t kill a baby just makes him stronger. Yeesh!

    Good grief! Was this some sort of challenge to see how many fatally harmful items they could get onto the baby’s bedroom floor at one time? I hope these scum bags never have the opportunity to breed ever again, that poor baby!
