What's worse than drunk driving? Drunk driving with your four-year-old in the car. What's worse than that? Fleeing the scene, crossing an interstate, and trying to shot-put the kid.
Nikke Settle, a 25-year-old from Spartanburg, S.C., was reportedly under the influence when she crashed her 2009 Lexus into median on Interstate 26. She then bailed, taking her child with her across the interstate, up a hill, towards a tall fence.
Witnesses said they had to persuade Settle to stop throwing the kid into the fence in an attempt to escape the police. When she returned to the crash scene she was arrested. The child was unharmed and turned over to his grandmother.
