The baby was discovered covered in vomit in the backseat of an alleged drunk driver’s vehicle.

Princeton troopers made a Driving Under the Influence arrest and discovered the baby boy was in the backseat covered in vomit, reports Bluefield Daily.

“We made an arrest for DUI,” said trooper B.R. Wood, with the Princeton detachment. “The 1-year-old baby boy was in the backseat covered in vomit. The vehicle was disabled, so we brought the baby boy back to the detachment.”

A Senior Trooper gave the baby a bath in the sink of their break room/kitchenette, wrapped him in a towel, and then cradled him until Child Protective Service officials arrived.

“He was the best little baby. He had just started to nod off when CPS (Child Protective Services) arrived,” Wood said.

Wood said the baby had been sick for some time. “Apparently, he had been under the weather for a bit.”

“The baby has now been placed with a legal guardian,” Wood said “He is safe at this time and under the supervision of CPS.”

  • Poor little mite. He certainly deserves better parenting.


  • What that policeman did is so sweet. :-)
    Who was driving the car then? One parent or someone else?


  • That was so thoughtful of the policeman.


  • What lovely care was given to this child in what was a terrible circumstance. This child will now have a memory of safety and care vs a parent who can’t provide either.


  • What a wonderful caring police-man.Hopefully the baby will be well looked after until this is resolved!


  • Aww poor bubba, how sweet of the police.


  • What a wonderful things the police did. Lucky they came upon them when they did. He looks very happy in the bath. I hope the mum gets some help too.


  • Poor bubba ! Good to hear some good report of the police, they often work hard and get negative response on what they do.


  • wow what a poor little dude to be covered in vomit :( – I do hope that the mother was charged for her neglect!

    Well done to the guys that found him and took care of him


  • This could so easily have been a much worse ending- it could have been blood from an accident they had to wash off!! I hope this is the wake-up call the Mother needs, he looks to be a beautiful happy baby xxx


  • Poor little bub. What a good police story


  • Lovely police story – and what else were they to do with a baby covered in vomit? They would have ended up being sick too if they had to smell that for any length of time. Hope the baby is looked after properly and the mother gets her just deserts.


  • So nice to hear the baby boy is safe. I hope that will continue where he has been placed in guardianship. What a wonderful thing the police did for this little fellow. Some people should never be allowed to have children. Such bad parenting and it always seems to be the innocent ones that get damaged.


  • how very dare these low lifes breed! I am so over these stories, yep very emotional, poor, poor bubba xxx


  • poor little bub, so nice to hear a good police story instead of all the negativity of late!
