Couple charged after taking kids in stroller for a walk, allegedly drunk

A man and woman seen tipping over a baby stroller several times with two young children in it near a busy street in Round Rock end up jailed over the incident.  Angelique Myers with Round Rock PD said concerned citizens called in, and when police arrived, 54-year-old Robert Gibson and 48-year-old Cynthia Gibson were obviously intoxicated and could barely stand. 

"They admitted to taking shots a little before they encountered our officers and we ended up pressing charges against these individuals for endangering children," said Myers.

Relatives could not be found to take the children and Child Protective Services was called, said Myers.
