Cops: White Plains woman busted for giving teens rum

A White Plains woman is in hot water after police say she gave rum to two teens who helped her shovel snow during the blizzard.

Slivia Deleon, 41, is charged with unlawfully interacting with a minor, a misdemeanor. White Plains Public Safety Police Commissioner David Chong says the boys came home in a "highly intoxicated state" on Monday and their parents called police.

Chong says Deleon shared a bottle of rum with them after they shoveled her driveway. The boys then offered to dig her car out. Chong says she drove them to a liquor store and bought another rum bottle, which they consumed together.

Deleon says she is sorry and that she is due back in court next month.
