Drunk nanny passes out, then crashes car after mom arrives

Posted: Updated:
TOMS RIVER, N.J. -

Authorities say a New Jersey nanny passed out drunk while she was supposed to be watching a little boy, then fled and crashed her car into a fire hydrant when his mother got home.

Toms River Township police say 50-year-old Susan Porfido-Gibson, of Berkeley Township, was captured after the car crash. She's charged with child endangerment and drunken driving, and also received numerous motor vehicle citations. She was in jail on $50,000 bail and couldn't be reached for comment Saturday. It wasn't clear if she had a lawyer.

Police say her blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit when she was arrested Friday.

Authorities say the child's mother hired Porfido-Gibson through a child care website and left her son with Porfido-Gibson on Friday morning. When the mother returned home in the early afternoon, authorities say, she found Porfido-Gibson passed out on the floor and her crying son with a soiled diaper.

When Porfido-Gibson came to, authorities say, she ran out the front door, stumbling and mumbling unintelligibly, then drove off. A short time later, police say, her car struck a fire hydrant and dislodged it from the ground.

Authorities say three empty bottles of alcohol were found in her car, which had moderate front end damage.

    Just a few weeks ago a Catholic-born, American man –- a former military school student, special forces aspirant, law enforcement officer and bodybuilder -- set off on a path far from any he'd envisioned for himself as a kid in North Carolina: on the other side of the world, in Lebanon, he was trying to figure out how to get into Syria and join ISIS, the most radical, bloodthirsty terrorist group of our times.
