'Tan Mom' In Custody, Forced Into Detox
(MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.)— Patricia Krentcil, widely known as "the tanning mom," was detained and sent to a temporary detox facility after allegedly being intoxicated at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport last Thursday.
Airport police were called to the Delta ticket counter after receiving reports of an intoxicated woman. Krentcil was not arrested but was taken to a detox facility until she sobered up. She was accused of, but not indicted for child endangerment in 2012 for allegedly taking her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth.
Talk about living under a lucky star.
