BOONE COUNTY, Iowa -- A car pulled over for going 93mph in a 65mph zone had two small children unrestrained in the car, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office said.

The driver of the car and the children’s mother were both arrested.

A deputy stopped the car at 169 North and US 30 Monday shortly before 10 p.m. and found the mother, Nicole Walters, unresponsive in the vehicle with the children.

A large amount of prescription drugs and marijuana was also found.

The driver, Tyler Alberts, was cited for driving while suspended and no child restraints.

After being checked out at the hospital, Walters was charged with two counts of child endangerment and several drug and alcohol charges.

The children are in a relative's care.

      It may be the definition of child endangerment, pertaining to who is legally the caretaker (the mother). A boyfriend or some other friend is not the caretaker normally responsible for the child. A guess.

    My favorite part is how they were pulled over for going 93mph with a car full of drugs and the driver had a suspended license. “I have all of these drugs, a suspended license, and 2 kids in the backseat. Let’s see how fast thing thing can go.”

    Put ’em both in the slammer and throw away the key. Or better yet feed them all the drugs at once and do us all (and the kids) a favor. They’ll just do it again or something similar.


    What?? No one is blaming the cop for violating this poor mothers rights? Jeez what is this world coming too?

    The mother violated the childrens rights by not protecting them better. Unless she was kidnapped (unlikely) then she should not have gotten into a car with her children without the correct restraints. They both need serious help and I hope the children are now in better care than their mother was so very obviously able to give them…
