Woman facing charges for multitasking
Police in Kettering, Ohio, say a woman is facing charges for allegedly driving her car, talking on a cell phone and breast-feeding her child at the same time.
Kettering Police Officer Michael Burke said Genine Compton, 39, was tracked down by police after a concerned motorist contacted authorities about her alleged vehicular multitasking, the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News reported Friday.
I tried to say something to her, the man was quoted as saying during Thursday morning's incident.
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 breast-feed this kid?' That's what she said to me.
Burke said Compton is facing up to 180 days in jail plus fines of up to $1,950 if convicted on charges of child endangerment and unlawfully restraining her child, the Daily News reported.
