A 7-month-old boy was rescued from the back of a car last week, but it's not for the reason you're thinking.

Lacie L. Peterson, the 29-year-old mom, has been arrested for child endangerment after a series of traffic violations reported by a witness ended with her passing out over the steering wheel at a red light in Greene County, GA.

Police arrived at the scene to find Peterson unresponsive and impaired behind the wheel, with her 7-month-old son unbuckled in an unsecured car seat in the back of the car.
