Stephanie Irene Santana Drunk and Pregnant was arrested for leaving her other daughter, one, in car as she tried to get a piercing at tattoo parlor

A drunk, pregnant woman was arrested after she left her one-year-old daughter inside a car while she tried to get a piercing at a tattoo parlor, police said.

Stephanie Irene Santana, 20, faces multiple charges after she was found passed out behind the wheel of her car early Wednesday at the Dagos Tattoo Shop in Houston, Texas where her baby lay surrounded by beer bottles and Xanax prescription pills.

Employees at the tattoo shop called police after the woman, who is seven months pregnant, walked into the parlor with slippers on and asked how long a piercing would take because her child was sleeping in the car parked outside.

The mother will likely face a number of charges, including driving while intoxicated with a child under the age of 15, possession of a controlled substance and child endangerment.

Santana drove to the tattoo parlor around 3am, police said. Read More
