A Wisconsin mother who crashed her SUV while three times the legal drink drive limit was so drunk she could not remember the names or ages of her three young children who were in the car, police said.
Monica Mencheski, 32, from Green Bay, spent ‘five minutes vomiting outside the squad’ vehicle and yelled about ‘following her children’s father in her car’, according to the criminal complaint.
The ‘highly intoxicated’ mom drove the SUV off the road and through back yards, narrowly missing a house but crashing into a tree near Cormier Road in Ashwaubenon at around 10pm on Friday.

The intoxicated mom drove her SUV through back yards, destroying lawns and crashing into a tree and a pole before getting stuck on a rock
Captain Jody Crocker, from Ashwaubenon Public Safety, told WTAQ the SUV kept going.
‘The vehicle then crossed through the yard into the next neighbors yard, pretty much destroying all of the landscaping in the backyard. It then struck a utility pole and destroyed the pole.’
Crocker said the car continued until it got wedged on a large landscaping rock, where police apprehended Mencheski.
Police said the children were five years, two years and three months old. They were not injured.
When officers asked to perform sobriety tests, Mencheski said: ‘I am too fat and wobbly to do this’, ‘I am too drunk’, and ‘not gonna lie, I’m drunk’, the complaint states.
A preliminary breath test showed her blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit.
Authorities said the children, aged 5, 2 and 3 months, were not injured when their drunk mother crashed the SUV
