Amber Renee Bradley, a 29-year-old mother of three from Layton, Utah, was arrested on June 4 after being discovered in a gutter, where she had passed out after allegedly partying the night away with some teenage boys.
Upon searching her apartment, police found four unconscious teens amidst an assortment of beer, marijuana, Xanax and drug paraphernalia, the Daily Mail reports. All of the teenage boys were between the ages of 14 and 16.
Bradley's children, ages 4, 5 and 8, were reportedly asleep in a separate bedroom.
Bradley was charged with child endangerment, supplying alcoholic products to a minor, and possession of a controlled substance.
She had invited the teens over to her place to play beer pong, according to court documents.
As defined by Merriam-Webster, beer pong is "a game in which a set of beer-containing cups is placed at two ends of a table and in which a player scores by bouncing or tossing a Ping-Pong ball into an opponent's cup from which the opponent then has to drink the beer."
Also known as "Beirut," the game was invented in the early 1980s by some college frat boys at Lehigh University, as explained by the Daily Princetonian — Princeton University's newspaper.
The game's genesis is believed to be inspired by the 1983 terrorist bombing of U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. According to a representative of the Theta Delta Chi frat at Lehigh, the drinking game drew an "analogy between the ping-pong balls flying across the table and landing on the opponent’s side and an idea that the U.S. should bomb Beirut as a result of the casualties in the area," the Daily Princetonian noted.
In any case, as with Amber Bradley and her teenage guests, the goal is to get bombed.
