TALLADEGA — An Odenville couple were arrested at the bowling alley in Talladega Wednesday night while intoxicated, taking pills and ignoring their 1-year-old child.

James Derrick Hansen, 27, was initially arrested on outstanding felony warrants issued by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. His wife, Brandy Nicole Hansen, 25, was charged with public intoxication and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

According to Talladega Police Chief Alan Watson, the county Department of Human Resources took custody of the child and eventually placed it with the mother’s parents in Leeds.

Patrons and staff at the bowling alley called police to report the couple about 10 p.m. The baby was crying and hungry, but they had apparently neglected to bring any milk with them, according to Watson.

James Hansen was wanted for a probation violation stemming from a conviction for theft of property in the second degree, according to a spokeswoman for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

Brandy Hansen was found to be in possession of Hydrocodone, Watson said.

Unlawful possession of a controlled substance and theft of property in the second degree are both class C felonies, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison.

Public intoxication is a misdemeanor.
