Breeders pop pills, ignore baby at bowling alley

Odenville couple arrested in Talladega:

Bowling alley workers in Talladega, Alabama called the police on Brandy Nicole Hansen, 25, and her husband James Derrick Hansen, 27. Holy crap, she’s 25?

Anyway it seems that they were at the bowling alley and ignoring their 1-year-old. The baby was hungry and they had no food or milk to give.

Mr. Hansen was arrested on an outstanding warrant for a probation violation and Mrs. Hansen was founs to be in illegal possession of Hydrocodone that she was allegedly popping at the bowling alley. I would mention that they were both said to have been intoxicated but since they were at a bowling alley that would have been redundant.

The child has been placed with a grandparent.

I like how they have money for booze and pills but didn’t bring any food for the kid with them. At least they didn’t leave the poor kid at home. Then again a bowling alley isn’t the safest place to let a kid run loose.

Thanks to Lucentabella (great name by the way) for the tip.

  1. I hate it when they leave kids in custody of a grandparent, the parent of the offender? Really? They obviously didnt do a very good job with their own children…

    • True but historically a lot of the time grandparents take better care of children than the child's parents. Unfortunately I've seen it repeatedly.

      • That has a lot to do with maturity and having more money than when they had children. My parents were a lot better people when I was older than when I was a kid. A lot of young adults have problems prioritizing when they have kids and don't realize it's not okay to still party hardy. On fb all the time I see people post about how they went out and got trashed within a week of them having a kid, wtf people.

    • That's not always the case! I happen to be a grandparent who has custody of a grandchild and I was always a very good mother to my children…I put my life on a shelf to raise 3 young children after my husband died….I made sure they were brought up able to do everything they normally would have if their father hadn't died. They were involved in Scouts and just about everything else that came along. Just because grandparents have custody does not mean they failed at being parents and I highly resent your statement stating we as parents didn't do a good job. You can't group all of us together….some probably didn't give a darn about how they brought their kids up but I for one did and I'm sure many other's did too. I hope one of your children…if you have any…..never goes astray and you become one of the many grandparents who do take in a grandchild…..will you then feel 'you' didn't do a good job as a parent? I don't blame myself for my adult child being Autistic and still wanting to be a parent!!

      • To answer your question yes, I would feel I was a failure as a parent if my child grew up to become a drug addicted retard and had his or her kids taken away. As you should have been able to tell, I was referring to a case such as this, where drugs and child neglect are involved, not where mental disability or death of the child caused the grandparent to step in. Be offended all you want, thats your choice. I did not group anyone together as anything, you did that.

    • You know I love the fuck out of you – but a "grandparent" may not be the reson for the asshats being drug addicted fuckwads. Drugs can often undo years of excellent parenting and the parents of the drug addicted (adult) children suffer from the addiction as well. The only reason I say this is because my Grandmother is a terrific woman. She raised 7 children – all are amazing people…. except my father. He's the shit head that fell into the drug addiction trap and he has been a fuck up since. But he will not cuss in front of his mother. He has crazy respect for her. He just can't NOT do drugs. She can't be blames for that.

      • Of course I dont think this is true of everyone, there are always exceptions. But I must admit that when something like this happens I immediately think, what did that persons parent do or NOT do? It might be wrong of me to make that assumption in certain cases Im sure, but most of the time my experiences in life have shown that people who do these kinds of things (not just being on drugs, but doing bad things to children) did not have a stable home or good parents. I didnt have great parents but they still managed to teach me right from wrong, mainly that you dont hurt children and that being a parent should mean being selfless and a caregiver, tough love and all that kind of stuff too. But there comes a point where the choices a person makes are their own and I understand that what I think is not exactly true all the time. I was only expressing my opinion. Maybe a parent of a child who did something like this should be looked at before a baby is put in custody of them. Thats all Im saying.

    • There seems to be an exception in every family that has more than one or two kids. Often there's one kid who no matter how much the parents did to raise him/her right, they still fall into the drugs or alcohol or something and end up a mess. And, ugh, with girls… the problem is often a guy. Seriously women… stand on your own two feet and make something of your life instead of depending on some guy to do it for you (this stmt does not apply to women owning a brain).

      Oftentimes, the grandparents are totally ok to take custody of a kid — I hope that is the case in this story. Sometimes, the grandparents are crazy loser idiots who have messed up everyone of their children because they couldn't grow up and be responsible themselves. THOSE are the ones that worry me.

  3. Don't forget about whatever it cost them for bowling… I realize that's a fairly cheap date, but seriously, they could have gotten that baby *something* to eat for what it cost to go bowling.

    Seriously, if it were between me eating (never mind doing drugs) and my baby eating, baby wins hands down.

    • Don't most bowling alleys have vending machines? Buy the kid some crackers. Maybe they forgot they had a kid, I guess at least they didn't leave it in the car..

  5. I was born to an addict/alcoholic. my grandparents adopted me when i was 2 1/2 after driving to another state to pick me up at a bar (i was 6 months old) where my BO had left me with some random couple. thankfully it was the 60's and people were "safer" back then. You would think that knowing what i did about my birth and the first 6 months of my life, which has repercussions to this day with trust issues and men, i wouldnt have done any drugs or ever took one drink of alcohol. you would think…..and you would be wrong. My Mom and Dad did everything for me, i never wanted for anything, my parents were very loving, neither one of them smoked, drank….till i was an adult i never heard either one of them say anything harsher than shit or damn. we were very involved in church and the community, took family vacations across the country and had opportunities that most kids today just dont have. i had a blessed, amazing childhood, and i still grew up and became an addict. sometimes parents can do everything right and the kids still come out with problems

  7. I love bowling! Here in Australia you can't buy alcohol at bowling alleys, people actually go there to-GASP!-bowl. How's that for extreme weirdness?
    I was light on finances when my son was about 6 months old. Quit my job because his turd brained father couldn't be trusted to give him his formula or feed him properly while I was at work. He lost some weight and I asked his "dad" about it and he said that he sometimes "forgot" because apparently TV was too important (he didn't drink or do drugs). I quit work that day, tossed out "dad", gave my son everything he needed even if all I had was cereal for myself, he got fruit and veg, meat, milk and anything he needed. When I felt better about things, I found care for him and got myself a part time job and he thrived. He is 12 now and so intelligent and funny. I have a gorgeous hubby and a beautiful girl also and I love my family. His bio dad is still a complete dick! I just can't imagine how children can be abandoned that easily. So many heart wrenching stories,, so many deaths. I really shouldn't read these things.
