(KFOR) OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City mother has been arrested for child abuse after she was found passed out in an apartment breezeway.

On June 21, police were called to the 5500 block of NW 23rd because a woman was reportedly passed out on the steps of an apartment complex.

When police arrived, they found an intoxicated woman, later identified as 35-year-old Alana Chavez, lying on the stairs.

According to the police report, an officer asked Chavez how she ended up on the stairs and she replied, “I’m here because I’m stupid.”

Police say Chavez was so intoxicated that she couldn’t complete a sentence.

Her 6-year-old son was left unsupervised at the time.

The woman was placed under arrest for child abuse due to her inability to provide basic care for her son.

Her son was placed in a local youth shelter.
