SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Police said a young couple wanted to party, but they had some explaining to do when they allegedly showed up at the club with a toddler.
Heather Johnson, 25, and Andrew Wofford, 34, face charges after Spartanburg Public Safety officers reported the pair was drunk and the mom was putting her child in a bad situation.
It was on the corner of West Broad and Spring streets in Spartanburg that Public Safety officers found Wofford and Johnson drunk and fighting about where they parked their car.
On the way to jail, Spartanburg officers said Wofford told them that DSS should take Johnson's 15-month-old because she's an unfit mother.
This came after officers cuffed Wofford and charged him with public drunkenness.
When officers found the two arguing, they said Johnson was holding her toddler and she told them Wofford had "lost" their car. Neither Johnson nor Wofford had drivers' licenses.
The police report said that the couple had been drinking at Club Six downtown. An employee of Club Six told police that Wofford and Johnson had come to the door together. According to the report, Johnson left Wofford outside in the rain with the child and she started drinking.
The employee said Wofford tried to get inside with the boy, and that's when security told Johnson to leave and called police.
Johnson and Wofford are out on bond. FOX Carolina tried to reach both of them at their homes, but no one answered.
Johnson was charged with public drunkenness and child neglect. Police said the child's grandmother was called and took him home with her.
