We all have snuck something into a movie theater before. Candy, drinks – I once saw someone pull a family-size bag of potato chips out of her purse. Someone else had a 2-liter somehow. But this mom snuck alcohol into a movie theater using her son’s sippy cup, and police would like to have a chat with her.

The mother went to the theater on Friday with her 5-year-old son. She brought her son’s sippy cup, but had it filled with “a strong alcoholic beverage.” Apparently at some point during the movie the mother took some kind of pill/medication as well, says witnesses. She became extremely drunk (and high?) during the movie. We’ve got a real contender for mom of the year here, for sure. Her son was crying during the film as well, which made other people in the theater angry, of course.

Eventually enough complaints got to the manager that she seems to have been kicked out. Problem was that she could barely walk, talk, or obviously care for the 5-year-old. Theater staff stopped her from getting into her car, and someone called police. When police tried to talk to the woman, they tried to search her purse. That’s when she threatened to kill the officer. After all that, the details get fuzzy (much like the woman’s memory), and the woman somehow was not arrested on the scene. Now they’re looking for her, and want to charge her with “misdemeanor reckless conduct and public intoxication.”

So that begs the question, what sort of things have you snuck into a movie theater? Were you ever caught?
