Cops: Drunk Mom Found With Daughter in Sesame Place Parking Lot

Police say the woman in the Sesame Place parking lot hit .339 on a breathalyzer.

Police in Middletown, Bucks County, say a woman from Penndel hit .339 on a portable breath-analyzer while in the parking lot of Sesame Place with her 6-year-old daughter. She had passed out shortly before taking the breath test.

On June 4th, Middletown police say officers were flagged down by a driver who said there was a woman who appeared incoherent in the parking lot with her daughter. Cops say they found Lora Paone attempting to put a stroller in the trunk of a car. After she fell over and briefly passed out, the cops gave her the breath test. The legal limit in Pennsylvania for driving is .08.


Cops don't know if Paone and her daughter were arriving at or leaving Sesame Place. Though it applied for a liquor license in 2001, Sesame Place reversed course and does not serve alcohol in the park.

Paone was charged with endangering the welfare of children, reckless endangerment, and public drunkenness.
