His intoxicated mother, Jessica Lee GUENTHER of the 600 block of Hummel Avenue, was found laying in an alley heavily intoxicated. GUENTHER was one of the subjects who had left during the previous incident on Hummel Avenue. GUENTHER was taken back to her home by police as she was too intoxicated to walk her son home to get warm clothing when he complained of the cold. GUENTHER became belligerent in front of her home and began yelling and screaming at officers causing neighbors to come outside. She was told repeatedly to calm down but refused. GUENTHER was taken into custody but continued yelling and screaming.
