The family that drinks together...

...goes to jail together, apparently. Especially when they start showing up drunk at the police station to pick up a one-year-old boy:
A state trooper stopped a minivan for speeding early Saturday on U.S. 30 in Schererville in northwestern Indiana. He arrested the 24-year-old woman on a drunken driving charges.

The boy's father arrived later to pick him up, but officers determined he was intoxicated and also arrested him on a drunken driving charge.

Police said the boy's grandparents then arrived. Both of them also had been drinking, state police said, but the grandmother who was driving was not over the legal limit, so officers escorted them home with the child.
That kid's got a bright future. Just think of all the drinking games he's going to win twenty years from now. Quarters, beer pong, the sky's the limit.

(What, can't a guy try to put an optimistic spin on an awful story?)
