Guess the State: Drunk 4-Year-Old Steals Christmas Presents

If you said Tennessee, you’re a winner

A 4-year-old boy, beer in hand, is accused of stealing Christmas presents from his neighbors. It’s a strange story, but also a sad one. 

April Wright is 21 years old and is going through a divorce with her husband who is in jail.  She says she is not sure how her 4-year-old managed to get out of the house, open a beer, and steal the neighbors presents from under their tree.  Now she’s just glad he’s okay and says she won’t let it happen again.

The child, Hayden Wright, was found around 1:45 am Tuesday, wandering the streets of his neighborhood.  In a police reports, officers said he was wearing a little girl’s dress and drinking a beer. The police report says the child had to be taken to the hospital to be treated for alcohol consumption.

If only I had a crystal ball to see where young Hayden will be in 15 years.  In jail like his father for burglary, drug possession, and DUI?  Like his mother, looking 20 years older than his actual age and with a kid of his own?  Maybe he’ll continue with the cross-dressing, escape from Chattanooga, and wind up in West Hollywood.  One can only hope!
