Grandparent-of-the-year Lorri Compo was watching her 1-year-old grandson when she was apprehended, along with five others, and charged with running a meth lab out of her Sidney, Mich. home. After the bust, the baby was released to his paternal grandmother, who found a baggie of meth in his diaper. The boy’s mother claims she had no idea that instead of tending to her son her mom was tending to a drug den. Photo via WeirdNews.com
Thirty-five-year-old California dad Sloane Briles was allegedly fed up with his son’s crying, so he tossed the 7-year-old off the side of a sightseeing boat mid-argument to “toughen him up.” The boy nearly died before being rescued by a passing boat. Authorities say Briles, who is divorced from the child’s mother, appeared to be drunk. I say toss Daddy overboard about 30 miles from shore.
With her 3-year-old daughter in the back seat, 34-year-old Floridian Miranda Marie Peters-Ortiz robbed a Wendy’s, then led police on a high-speed chase. When the cops finally halted her car—by using stop sticks to pop her tires—she refused to get out of the vehicle because she was allegedly busy smoking crack. The child was thankfully unharmed and taken to her father following a brief visit to the hospital. Photo via Brevard County Sheriff's Department
Dad Todd Marcum allegedly put electric dog collars on his children—ages 3, 6, 8 and 9—because he "thought it would be funny." While the collars are not strong enough to seriously harm a human, each kid was shocked at least once. Marcum was taken to Marion County Jail in Oregon and charged with four counts of criminal mistreatment. The children were taken to their mother, who, we hope, filed for divorce immediately.

Twenty-six-year-old Donald Christian Rombough allegedly left his 6-year-old son inside a truck parked in sweltering Fort Meyers, Fla. in order to watch an ultimate fighting bout at a bar. Two women saw the child trapped inside the vehicle crying and called security. Once located and taken to the parking lot, Rombough told the officers that he had to go back inside because his food was on the way. The boy suffered from dehydration but was otherwise OK.

When Tampa dad Adrian Kegler, 32, was too drunk to drive, he was smart enough not to get behind the wheel. However, he was not smart enough to realize placing his 12-year-old son in the driver’s seat instead was a bad idea. While Kegler allegedly sat inebriated in the passenger seat, the boy plowed his dad’s GMC Yukon into another car. Luckily, no one was harmed in the incident. Photo via TampaBay.com
