NAPLES, Fla. -- (WBBH) -- A Collier County mother was arrested Monday after school staff said she showed up "too high" to pick her kids up. Graciela Cruz Padron is accused of driving to Golden Terrace Elementary School while impaired.
The assistant principal at the school said Cruz Padron arrived to pick up her daughter and her daughter's two friends. Once Cruz Padron started slurring her words, staff started questioning the children's safety.
School officials said Cruz Padron fell asleep while standing. Deputies said Cruz Padron seemed confused and had orange liquid coming out of her nose. Deputies found a little girl inside Cruz Padron's car. Investigators said Cruz Padron was so out of it she forgot the little girl was in the car. Cruz Padron was arrested for leaving the child unsupervised in a running car.
All children were turned over to their biological fathers.
