Bismarck, North Dakota's 22-year-old Kayla Gail McKenzie went for a drive this week. It was quite an eventful evening cruise for Kayla as she rear-ended a car, struck a chain link fence, backed up into another fence before striking a parked pickup with such force that it rolled into another parked truck. Police arrived to find Kayla passed out in her SUV with its front bumper missing. Witnesses told officers Kayla had her 1-year-old child in her lap and her two other children, ages 2 and 4, unsecured during her excursion. Cops found marijuana, rolling papers and a glass cylindrical device with burn marks on it inside her vehicle and she was charged with drug, DUI, child neglect and misdemeanor driving under suspension for the fourth time. When given a chance to speak in court Kayla said, "I look like a bad mother but I'm not. I'm actually a really good mom."
