Update: Catalina Clouser's Baby Was Also in the Car During Boyfriend's DUI, Before Being Dumped in Phoenix Intersection

Catalina Clouser put her 2-month-old baby in a car seat after smoking some weed with her boyfriend at a Phoenix park Friday night.

The minor detail she missed was that the 19-year-old left her kid on the roof of the car and drove away, and realized this mistake about 12 miles down the road, police say.

The kid was eventually found by another driver, sitting in the middle of the intersection at 45th Avenue and Cholla Street -- about two blocks away from where she had started her trip.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Clouser, her boyfriend took the baby to a park to smoke some weed around 9 p.m. Friday, and eventually went to a convenience store to pick up some stuff.

Shortly before 11 p.m., police stopped Clouser's boyfriend for erratic driving, and was arrested for driving while impaired by intoxicating substances, according to the documents.

Clouser told police she had also partaken in the pot-smoking, so they gave her a ride to her boyfriend's house.

Clouser eventually made it to a friend's house near 45th Avenue and West Lupine Avenue, before leaving that house around midnight.

By 12:45 a.m., someone was phoning up the cops, letting them know that they just drove through the intersection of 45th Avenue and Cholla, where they found a baby in a car seat sitting right in the middle of it.

Clouser realized she'd never actually placed the baby inside the car, and retraced her route -- she was 12 miles away, near 83rd Avenue at this point -- and showed up to the location where police officers were investigating the baby-in-the-intersection thing.

Police say Clouser admitted that she just smoked some more marijuana just after midnight, and was also jailed for driving under the influence of an intoxicating drug.

The youngster was taken to the hospital, but was released with no injuries, according to the documents.

Clouser's facing charges of child abuse and aggravated DUI.

Im sure its just going to be a lesser sentence then we all would like to see, but if that was a man that did it ,we would see justice practiced with extreme prejudice. More women walk then men in the court of law.

I'd like to offer Catalina a complementary tubal ligation and as a bonus her equally loser boyfriend a free vasectomy.

She was obviously on other drugs! /: How can a mother leave her baby on the roof of her car and get stoned while she has her child??!! Some people just don't deserve to be parents. What a shame.

These scumbags are allowed to breed. There are people out there that can't have children and this person who has the intelligence of a nat is breeding. They will give her the baby back after talking some parenting classes and doing her jail time I'm sure.

I hope she never get the child back. How stupid can someone be. And how stupid can he be smoking with a child. Some people just don't need children at all

there should be forced sterilization for someone like this, take her genes out of the gene pool...or at least minimize her genes in the pool since she already has a child

I do not know this younglady, but we tend to jump o the ban wagon of sensationalized news stories.  No this as not one of her better days, but it is possible the baby was a result of something horriffic and "smoking dope" was her way of dealing with the situation.  This may not bethe case at all, but before we hurl insults and resort to name calling, try a see the big picture. Either way she needs help and I for 1 will pray all invoved will get it. Agan, my opinion

S-T-U-P-I-D....I hope she doesn't just get a slap on the wrist! She doesn't deserve to get her baby back, she'll probably do it again! There are woman out thr that can't have children and would give anything to have a child, but it is usually the ones that can have children just take them for granted! I pray for all these innocent children who go thru soo much in their young lives!

I doubt if she only did marijuan. Im a legal marijuan patient, and also a parent of a beautiful girl.Never have i acted in a manner that would put my girls life in danger.Im a responsable person an most of all a responsable loving parent .
Idiots like these bitch make it so hard for patients like me to get their medicine. Ignorance has everyone thinking so wrong about marijuana, and dumdasses like her make me look really bad.
Now thanks to her the laws are gonna get more stupid than they were already .

She needs to grow up before she should get that child back or be allowed to have anymore kids. I know....nobody should tell her vagina what to do but come on....should she?

Take the kid away, it's obvious she is not capable of smart decisions.

This got some national attention. Also saw this in the Yahoo news.  All that bad light humiliation on this pink haired bimbo must really be embarrassing. She's also the #1 on the flaccid fool's MCSO mugshot of the day. (last time I checked).

I wonder what other charges this dumb bitch might face?

I sure hope the MontyPug ups the charges to felony child abuse...She needs to do some serious prison time.

People don't become parents by a process involving "deserving", they become parents by having unprotected sex.

There definitely needs to be a law sterilizing certain people! It would do the world a big favor.

I'm sorry, but you cannot actually be serious. The 'big picture' is that she is an unfit mother-point blank. She was smoking marijuana close enough to her child that he or she was inhaling the smoke with her, and then she drove off with him on the roof of her car. That poor child could have been seriously hurt OR KILLED but, wait, you want me to feel sorry for the pot head mom? We all have problems sweetie but that isn't an excuse for us to act irresponsibly and endanger the lives of others, especially not a defenseless two-month old.

She's not the only one making yourself look bad. Lay off the weed and learn to spell. Although, that selfish girl did ruin it for anyone rooting for marijuana legalization.

They need to do a psych evaluation along with a complete toxicity test...I bet she had more drugs than marijuana in her system!

This is a message to everyone.

Ladies: Keep your legs CLOSED and stay on birth control until you are ready to make a child and care for it.

Men: Keep it in your pants or, if you wish to engage in sexual activity, use a condom.

I think what she's trying to say is that we do not know the entire story. only what the media wants us to know and that rather than judge we should pray for all involved.

Hlucas21782

That was quite an ignorant comment. Until u to thru a medical condition such as hers u need not to judge. I no longer smoke weed but I can tell u one thing I'd rather have someone high from marijuana drive me around than someone who's been drinking.

good comeback kid pointing out my spelling was all  you had to say to me ,,if i lay off my medical marijuana i will end up in the hospital again i have ms ..and the meds the docs prescribe me do me no good .. i get more side effects than really fixing my pain ..trust me the last thing in my mind is how well i write in a blog in which half the ppl write properly .

Yes its all over the internet.

On a separate note, I'm curious: What do New Zealanders think of our notorious Shurf? You know the senile media whore who calls himself "America's Toughest Shuf". (joe arpaio).

Have you ever checked into having Lyme Disease? MS is one of many diseases that can be 'developed' from having Lyme. If you do have Lyme Disease, MS will be far from the last symptom you will start to experience, such as muscle and joint pains, difficult time remembering things, migraines and fatigue, hard time falling asleep and staying asleep, sensitive to sounds, touch, sites, tastes, chest pain (which is said to be 'anxiety attacks'), mono, plus much more. If you had Lyme before your children, they could be infected too. Do know that chronic Lyme DOES exist and DON'T let ANY doctor tell you otherwise! It's hard to treat and it can leave you paralyzed.
