Priscilla Flores, 34, is accused of leaving her two children at home alone while she went out to drink
A Texas mother has been arrested after police allegedly found her belligerently drunk at an Applebee’s while her two children were home alone.
Priscilla Marisol Flores, 34, was charged with two counts of child abandonment with intent to return and cited for public intoxication on Wednesday in Laredo.
Police say they were called to the restaurant on San Dario Avenue at about 1am because of an intoxicated woman who was taking food from other people’s plates and falling off a chair.
When they arrived they found Flores, incoherent and with bloodshot eyes, dancing on top of the bar, El Manana newspaper reported.
Flores allegedly cursed at the officers and tried hitting them when they told her to get down, according to the paper.
She was reportedly with a female companion who refused to take her home.
The officers offered to take her home and when they got to her house found Flores’ two 12-year-old children asleep in separate bedrooms.

There was no adult in the home even though Flores had told police she left her children with her mother, police say.
She was taken into custody at about 2.15am and the children were handed to their grandmother.
Flores was allegedly kicking the police car’s windows and being violent while on her way to jail.
An investigation into their living conditions has been opened.
