Police: Kid calls 911 about drunk parents

FAIRFIELD — A state agency was contacted after an 8-year-old called police Friday night to report his mother was passed out on the floor.

Police arrived to find both mother and father “highly intoxicated,” according to police, but both the 8-year-old and his 6-year-old sibling were unharmed. The state Department of Children and Families was notified, and the Craig Court couple went to a hotel for the night. A family friend came and stayed with the children.

The police report stated that neither parent seemed to grasp the seriousness of the situation or show much concern.

No charges have been filed at this point, but the police department’s Youth Bureau is investigating.
