Assistant Fire Chief Michael Wallace noticed the woman staggering out of the Macaroni Grill in St. Petersburg, Florida, and falling repeatedly on her face while making steady, if slow, progress toward her '90 Dodge sedan, small child in tow and curses filling the air. Alertly, Wallace calculated that falling-down-drunk + Dodge = trouble and ordered the child out of the car. Sure, the kid's mother then sped off, door flapping open, and smacked another car before ending up passed out on a lawn, but firemen can't make arrests.
