Police: Woman gave rum to snow-shoveling teens

WHITE PLAINS, NY White Plains public safety police commissioner, David Chong, says the boys' parents called police after the teens came home in a "highly intoxicated state" Monday.

The boys are 17 and 18. New York's legal drinking age is 21.

Police charged 41-year-old Silvia Deleon with unlawfully dealing with a minor, a misdemeanor.

Chong says Deleon shared a bottle of rum with the two boys 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.

There's no phone listing for Deleon and it wasn't clear if she had an attorney.
