If Brandy Nicole Watts and Jonathan Harty ever got together, they’d make the most dangerous Brady Bunch-style combined family ever.

Watts, 25, of Greene County, Tennessee, was pulled over this weekend for allegedly drunk driving with her four daughters in the car. One of the children, according to the arresting officer, said “mommy almost hit a house and was falling asleep while driving.”

Meanwhile in Seattle, 31-year-old Harty appeared in court this week, accused of speeding down the highway with his pants off and two young kids in the back. Police say Harty was high on meth. During his joyride, which took place back in April, police say Harty hit two cars. He pleaded not guilty to charges including vehicular assault, felony hit and run, reckless endangerment.

The charges against Watts are also bad, but not quite as serious as Harty’s. She’s facing DUI, driving on a suspended license, and four counts of reckless endangerment. She also reportedly had no insurance and no seatbelt on.
