NJ ‘Tanning Mom’ Sent To MN Detox Facility

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A New Jersey woman widely known as “the tanning mom” was sent to a temporary detox facility after allegedly being intoxicated at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan says airport police were called to the Delta ticket counter Thursday because of an intoxicated woman.

Hogan says Patricia Krentcil wasn’t arrested but was taken to a detox facility to sober up. He didn’t know if or when she had been released. She couldn’t be reached at her home number Saturday.

Krentcil was accused of child endangerment in April 2012 for allegedly taking her then 5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth. A grand jury declined to indict her.

Hogan says intoxicated travelers go to detox if they can’t care for themselves or be released into another’s custody.
