Smurfs Movie Allegedly Drives San Francisco Mother to Drink and Drive

A bottle of vodka is one way to make it through nearly two hours of the Smurfs. A San Francisco mother has been accused of chugging one too many shots of vodka while at the Smurfs movie with her 4-year-old daughter.

According to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office, 41-year-old Sarah Boushey was so drunk after seeing the movie, where she allegedly pounded a half-bottle of vodka, that she couldn't even remember her name when officers pulled her over.

But Boushey's young daughter, while not old enough to drink, is apparently old enough to know when mom is acting strange. Fortunately, the girl was able to fill in the blanks for police, telling them her mother's name and bluntly saying "she's drunk."

Boushey, who dodged her court appearance today, allegedly sideswiped two cars and hit a median as she left the Century 20 Theatre in Daly City this summer. Witnesses say she was incoherent, and police claim she had a blood alcohol content of .35 -- more than three times the legal limit.

When police investigated further, they found a half-empty bottle of vodka in her purse.

"I'm not a big fan of the Smurfs, but not enough to drink like that," District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told SF Weekly.

"The worst part is that a 4-year-old would know what being drunk is -- she knew mommy was drunk and that just tells you that mommy is drunk around her a lot," he added.

Meanwhile, a San Mateo County judge issued a warrant for Boushey's arrest after she failed to show up to court today.

This is a good reason why children are growing up too fast. When i was younger watching the smurfs, i was having fun as a child, and growing my imagination. Now, the movie is more for adults, as are most kid-aimed movies now. People sit and wonder why children are growing up so fast? well here is the answer; adults in the film industry stopped thinking about children years ago. They are more aimed at adults so more tickets are sold, when in reality I am more for buying what i was raised on for my children to watch, so there will be one less ticket bought!!!

Why is this city San Francisco not trying to get her help, and not procecute her?  As liberal as you are, why aren't you saying "she is a victim of ........what ever her up bringing, her relationships with people, etc., etc.l  Just like the occupied Oakland, and the mayor thinking the victims are the protestor, not the Police.  Give me a break!!

OK, first off you knew it was the smurfs, you knew it was two hours, why the hell did you go if you could not deal with it... the child is 4, if you say no, she can not go against you... Meanwhile a 4 yr old who knows when a parent is drunk is obviously not being taken care of well and a mother who will drive with a blood alcohol of .35 with her child in the car, when she can not even remember her own name deserves to go to JAIL and the child will be better off in foster care most likely...or maybe she is lucky enuf to have a non drunk relative who will take her in... UGG, I WOULD LOVE TO SLAP THIS WOMAN UPSIDE THE HEAD, HARD.... I hate people who risk their kids' lives with their stupidity...

What a piece of crap this women is!!! Her child should be taken off her for good and I don't care if she can help for drinking. She should of never done this in the first place. Meaning, she should of been a responsible person to not drink in front of your CHILD and then have the balls to try and drive...ugghh what garbage!!! This is exactly what is wrong with this world now. Kids growing up with so many horrible childhood issues and then get pushed into society as an adult...what a train wreck!!

Trolls kind of ARE performance artists, when you think about it.

Look at his other comments.  He's more than a troll.  He's either a performance artist or he's a raving lunatic.

In fairness, the movie does look especially terrible.

I saw it with my kids at the drive-in last summer. It was no picnic, but hardly an excuse either.
