dumb: driving while breastfeeding.......dumber: driving while breastfeeding while talking on a cell phone

An Ohio woman has been charged with child endangerment and unlawfully restraining her child after admitting to police that she did in fact breastfeed her child and use her cell phone while driving. In an effort to get a nomination for mother of the year award, Genine Compton, 39, told police that she 'does not deprive her child when the child is hungry'.

The incident took place on Thursday, February, 26th, when a male motorist on his way to drop off his son, noticed what was going on and decided to say something. After receiving a less than reassuring response, the man placed a call to the police department's non-emergency number.

"I tried to say something to her. She literally has the little girl on the steering wheel and I said, 'I can't believe you have that kid in your lap and she said, 'You want to pop your titty out and breastfeed this kid?' That's what she said to me. I'm like, 'You can feed your kid when you stop.' It's like wet out here. It's full of traffic. It's ridiculous. She's got like three other kids in the car."
The caller then saw the woman pull into a parking lot and decided to wait for police.When police arrived, Compton was already gone, so they used the license plate number to find and question her. If convicted of the child endangering charge, Compton could face up to 180 days in jail and fined between $1,500 and $1,800,. If convicted of the unlawful restraint charge, Compton could be fined up to $150.

She should receive some sort of fine for being so irresponsible, but I don't think 6 months away from her kids is the answer.


  1. Even a fine punishes the children as much as their mother. Some community service and anti-twat training would be cool.

  2. Heh. Some training may be in order. And really, a fine could consist of community service, it doesn't need to be of a monetary nature.
