Marin County Mom Arrested Over Drunken Teen Party

SAN RAFAEL  (CBS/AP) — A Marin County mother is under arrest for allegedly hosting a drunken party for her 15-year-old son and his friends.

Marin sheriff’s deputies arrested 57-year-old Carolyn Hedrich on suspicion of child endangerment, being under the influence of a controlled substance and violation of probation.

Sheriff’s officials said when deputies arrived at Hedrich’s San Rafael home on the 200 block of Margarita Drive in unincorporated San Rafael late Friday night they discovered a wild party with 60 teenage guests, including a 14-year-old girl who was so intoxicated that she needed medical treatment.

The homeowner also is accused of violating Marin County’s “social host” ordinance, which imposes heavy fines on adults who host teenage drinking parties.

Sheriff’s officials say Hedrich was inside the house during the party and was under the influence of drugs and possibly alcohol.

    Too bad the mother didn’t hire an adult chaperone (who cannot drink)
    to maintain order & ensure everyone is OK. Gotta be careful allowing
    minors to over indulge with use of alcohol, they can get hurt. Who
    called the police anyway? Had to be a responsible young person at
    the party, or a concerned neighbor.

    And, think about it, some poor shmoo is paying alimony and child support for this! Liberation is beautiful.

    Unbelievable… they let her go!!!!!! Where is the justice? You get more for a parking ticket than being drugged up and being neglectful..Her poor son is so lost because she is so messed up…Isn’t this her 5th time in Jail…..Isn’t there a pattern here!!!
    Doesn’t anyone care about her son? Most of the time he is on his own telling her what he is going to do…Sickening…OUTRAGEOUS!!!!

    This is very very sad. Carolyn is a good mother, just has bad judgment. Carolyn needs to be more of a parent to her son, not his “best friend”. The kid knows his mom hasn’t been all there lately, and takes advantage of her sad and sorry state of mind. He knows how to manipulate her because she wants to give him every thing to replace her mental absence. Wonder how responsible he will become when he grows up. Neither parent is at this point. She’s so lucky no one died.
