LAYTON — A woman found passed out in a gutter was arrested after police found her children were at home where teenagers allegedly threw a party of their own with alcohol supplied by the mom, according to police.

Amber Renee Bradley, 29, of Layton, was arrested Saturday for investigation of seven counts of child endangerment, intoxication and possession of a controlled substance.

According to a Davis County Jail booking report, Bradley was found passed out in a gutter just after 4 a.m. Her speech "was extremely slurred," she was disoriented and needed assistance walking, the report states.

Bradley mentioned something about her children, ages 8, 5, and 4, to police, stating a 15-year-old was watching them at her house around the corner, according to the jail report.

But when officers went there to check on them, they found four teens, ages 14 to 16, "unconscious lying next to beer, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and Xanax" on the floor and a table next to them, according to the jail report. Bradley's children were found asleep on the floor in a separate bedroom.

The teens told detectives that they had earlier been drinking with Bradley, who supplied the beer, the report states. One teen admitted to traveling to Ogden with Bradley to purchase Xanax, according to the report. She told officers she did not have a prescription for Xanax.

According to court records, an eviction notice was issued against Bradley on May 24 for owing more than $1,200 in rent.
