Shawndeeia Bowen, 29, of Hawthorne, was arrested for child endangerment at about 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday. The mother of six has a lot of people talking after driving on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles while texting with her one-year-old daughter sitting on her lap.

To make matters worse, she was driving with a suspended license and two more children in the back seat were not safely strapped into the vehicle. Her 2-year-old was in a safety seat, but it was not fastened with a seat belt and her 4-year-old was not wearing a seat belt.

Her baby girl is simply adorable.


Bowen also has nine traffic citations for similar offenses and is being held on $130,000 bail. She says that she put her child in the front seat because the infant was crying and needed to be comforted.

On her Facebook page she has posted several pictures of her kids and other assets that may or may not belong to her:



Is this woman a self-proclaimed nut?

She admitted that her children have been taken away from her in the past.

Here are some reactions on Twitter:

We can all spout hate at this mother and continue to make fun of her, or we can help her get back on her feet and help her become a safer driver, more protective mother, and a more effective citizen.

Hopefully Ms. Bowen will adhere to safety regulations in the future. If she ever gets her license back.
