Mom Accused Of Drunken Rampage With Kids In Car

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A mother has been arrested after allegedly smashing cars and other property during an alleged drunken revenge spree while her children were sitting in the backseat, according to authorities.

The Sacramento Police Department said 34-year-old Raquel Tellez drove drunk to the home of her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend on 66th Avenue and intentionally crashed twice into a car sitting in the home’s driveway.

Neighbors said they could hear the suspect’s two children, ages 12 and 14, screaming as Tellez allegedly began targeting other property in the neighborhood.

Neighbor John Constantine said Tellez tried to run down another man on the street and ended up smashing Constantine’s unoccupied work truck.

“Unbelievable, really,” he said. “I can’t even imagine what she was thinking.”

A man who answered the door at the home where the attack began asked not to be identified but said Tellez had a history of jealousy.

Tellez declined a request for interview from CBS13.

    Well it was a good thing that she was not on a freeway. I hope the kids are removed and placed in foster care. She no doubt will be in jail for a while.

  • Me

    It was probably the boyfriend that answered the door.

    Latinos and booze don’t mix, Matter of fact, latinos don’t go with anything Except the deficit in California

    • lotuslover

      Nice try Joe. ‘Cept the deficit in Calif is much more about unbridled wall street and bank fraud, fueled by the right-wing push for deregulation and “market” based commerce. Latinos had little to do with all that–unless they too believed in mortgage fraud, brought to them by slick, cowboy-hustler mortgage/realestae shysters. Read up on that–if you can read.

        You are right about Latinos…but the rest is WAAAAYYYYY off base.

    “…already out of jail…”. “…the man who answered the door said that she has a past history of violent jealousy.”

    So why is a person that is obviously a danger to society
    out on the street within a matter of hours? You can thank your overpaid judges and bleeding heart politicians for what is taking place in this country.

    • JusticeWarrior

      This is EXACTLY why those children in Wisconsin are dead.

  • Tired of stupidity

    Ummmm… Tell me where it says she is “already out of jail”? And where it says “Violent” jealousy? She is obviously a horrible parent that needs to have her children taken somewhere safe… But it makes it even worse when you people rewriting the story. They can do interviews in jail… They are the media.

    • Still tired of stupidity

      Sorry… When you have people rewriting the story…..

      • 1 question answered she is out of jail.

  • still kicking

    Hey, Tired Of Stupidity, the reason I said that she is already out of jail is because I watched the news clip at the top of this page where the TV anchor clearly states what I wrote. Watch the clip and you will get to hear statements by some of the neighbors, see the damage done to one vehicle, and learn lots of other interesting things. Like, for example, most the news articles presented here also have an accompanying video.

    Poor kids, well at least they are a live, that lady needs to be locked up for a long time for child endangerment. A women in Stockton did something similar then got on N. 99 lost control of her car, went through the divider and hit a car heading south on 99. She killed the Oregan couple in that car and 3 of her 5 kids were thrown out and splattered all over the highway, it was horrible. Lock this idiot up before SHE kills someone.
