Fargo daycare worker accused of being drunk with children
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a south Fargo daycare provider has been shut down after being charged with child neglect.
KVLY-TV reports that Cass County Social Services were called for a welfare check at the home of Richelle Ulmer on July 27. Court documents show that Ulmer, who was outside with a child, was stumbling, slurring her words and smelled of alcohol.
Social workers found two empty beer cans in the trash can, and an almost empty wine cooler bottle.
Investigators say a child reported that Ulmer had at one time passed out on the kitchen floor and the kids couldn’t wake her up, which caused food to burn in the oven.
Ulmer is facing one count of child neglect. Her public defender, Ashley Schell, did not return a message seeking comment.
