A Florida mother was arrested after her 10-year-old son was found wandering around a neighborhood naked and drunk.

31-year-old Nedra Byrd was arrested Thursday night after a couple walking their dog found the boy and called police.

When officers went to the child’s home, they found Byrd drunk and passed out on the couch.

When she came to, she didn’t even realize he was missing.

Neighbors are shocked and shaken-up.

“How could she not know her son is wandering around the streets, naked… and drunk!” one neighbor said.

Detectives say the boy told them that his mother gave him four shots of brandy.

He’s now in the custody of family services.
