Kelsey Len Girty

Kelsey Len Girty, 30, of Muskogee has been charged with a felony count of child endangerment by driving under the influence after an incident on June 1 on Oklahoma Highway 10A, according to documents filed with the case.

Girty is alleged to have been driving southbound on the highway when she lost control of her 1999 SUV struck a tree and flipped onto its top. When highway patrol officers arrived at the scene, the vehicle was empty and Girty was not there. A fireman told the trooper that the driver had been delivered by private vehicle to her residence just up the road. The driver had found her and a child standing beside the vehicle, covered in blood.

When the officer approached Girty at her house, he said she hysterically told him she was drunk and her “kid needed food,” so she had driven to the store. As the officer continued to question her, he reported that she became angry, gritting her teeth and yelling “take me to jail.” She reported to the officer that she had consumed a fifth of whiskey before driving.

The child was taken via ambulance to Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa for a deep gash on his arm.
