Police responded to a Griswold Drive address after a woman reported at 8:37 p.m. that her mother had arrived to pick up her daughter, but that the daughter wouldn’t get in the vehicle because “grandma smelled liked alcohol.” The mother wanted to make a “formal report” about her mother attempting to pick the girl up while intoxicated and said she was “attempting to show that her mother needs help.” Police spoke to the grandmother, who lived on Halsey Way, and she said she would “never try and put my granddaughter in my car if I was drunk” and that “she was right down the street, I would have walked there — why would I drive?” Police wrote: “The grandmother ... did not appear to be intoxicated. She spoke without hesitation and was steady on her feet when she got out of her bed to speak with us.” An officer also wrote that the woman who reported the incident “admitted” that she might qualify for housing through the Department of Children and Families “if she can prove that her mother is danger to her or her daughter.”
