SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE)  A Santa Fe mom found herself behind bars after police say she crashed in a fast food parking lot. When police found her she was topless, appeared drunk and had her little girl freezing in the backseat.

Santa Fe police say when they arrived at the McDonald’s last week, they also found Jennifer Jensen covered in blood.

According to the criminal complaint, employees at the McDonald’s called police at 3:30 a.m. because they believed Jensen crashed into a post in the parking lot.

Police found Jensen in her minivan with cuts on her hands and arms, covered in blood, and there was an open bottle of vodka in the car, according to the criminal complaint.

Her young daughter was in the backseat with no shoes or jacket on and was cold to the touch, police say.

Once an officer took the child out of Jensen’s car, they tried to ask her simple questions, but Jensen didn’t seem to understand. At one point, she even complained about her personal life.

“I’m already having my own family drama. It sucks when you have brothers,” Jensen said.

After police wrapped up her wounds and suggested a trip to the hospital, she responded, “I don’t want to go to the hospital. I already have a $10,000…check with them!”

Police did eventually take her to the hospital where they drew her blood to test her blood alcohol level. Those results are not back yet.

Jensen is charged with aggravated DWI for refusing to take a breathalyzer test, child abuse and property damage. The child was picked up from the scene by her grandparents. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
