A Texas mother was arrested after she allegedly passed out drunk in a car with her 10-year-old boy in the backseat during the triple digit temperatures.

The incident happened on Saturday, July 21st during the peak afternoon hours in Lakeway, Texas.

Lakeway Police arrested 34-year-old Adriane Grace Moss in the case.

The boy called police and said that his mom was passed out drunk and that he was locked inside a hot car.

Authorities say at the time of the call the temperature outside was about 104 degrees.

While authorities were trying to locate the vehicle, they asked the boy to pass the phone to his mother.

The boy says his mom was only going to hang up the phone.

Police were able to eventually locate the vehicle and arrest Moss.

A family member who did not want to come out camera says Moss has had multiple run-ins with the law and believes she should not have custody of the children.

CPS says they could not comment on the case due to the ongoing investigation.

Moss’ attorney says she does not have custody of her children and that her son is in the custody of a supervisor of her choice.
