There’s an aggressive effort to keep teens from getting their hands on alcohol and then driving.

“If I pour out the beer and send the kids home there is nothing preventing them from having a party next weekend,” said ABLE Commission Agent Erik Smoot.

Alcohol Beverage Laws Enforcement agents teamed up with Tulsa police and surrounding law enforcement agencies to check stores and restaurants selling alcohol to anyone underage.

On Wednesday night, police and ABLE ticketed two employees at the Reasors in Jenks and at Buffalo Wild Wings in South Tulsa for selling alcohol or liquor to minors.

Officers are going through a two day training with the goal of better enforcing Oklahoma’s alcohol laws.

Agents say it’s about keeping kids safe.

"It's really exhausting to go to the hospital and interview parents whose kid is seriously injured or killed in a car crash,” said Smoot.

That’s what has some parents so upset about one Wagoner County woman.

“I don't understand, I don't understand,” said Kelly.

This Broken Arrow mother is angry because Heidi Fain, 47, was arrested last weekend for providing alcohol to minors in her home.

"What she is doing is not right and someone is going to end up getting killed," said the mother.

Court records show Fain is awaiting trial for a suspected DUI crash involving six teens, three were sent to the ICU lat summer.

ABLE says they arrested Fain at her Broken Arrow home last weekend after they found drunk teens with alcohol and beer and smelled marijuana in her home.

"She is lucky that [the boy] survived. He was throwing up in the bathroom, he's 14,” said Smoot.

Officers and agents say it is infuriating to break up these parties.

"We want to hold people responsible," said Smoot.

Parents say they’ve had it too.

“I got that phone call too. 'Mom I’m here and so and so took pills and alcohol. There is nothing you can do for that child but call 911 and you get your butt home,'” said Kelly.

Another mother who didn’t want to be identified knows about the parties and says her son is serving community service after being involved in an incident with Fain.

“She needs to be stopped," said a mother.

Mothers say they’ve confronted Fain before the car crash.

"I thought I got through to her but obviously I didn't,” said Kelly.

FOX23 rang the doorbell at Fain’s listed address in Broken Arrow. The woman who came to door opened the blinds and refused to comment. She resembled Fain’s mug shot. 

"She needs to be a parent and stop trying to be a friend," said Kelly.

ABLE agents say they have forwarded charged to the Wagoner County DA’s office in last weekend’s arrest.

Court records show Fain is scheduled to be in court on March, 13th for last summer’s suspected DUI crash. She is charged with six counts of Child Endangerment by Driving Under the Influence and DUI Great Bodily Injury. 

“Cody’s Law” which is known as Oklahoma’s Social Host law state the first conviction is a misdemeanor and anything after that is a felony.

On Thursday, officers will go through a mock underage drinking party to show the skills they’ve learned to break up these parties.

I will never understand how this woman continues to get away with these actions. There is plenty of evidence and documentation of her illegal ways. What is broken with the justice system that allows her to be free and continue to do harm to minor children? The night that she drunkenly put the keys in the ignition with minor children in the vehicle should have been her last. The children will spend their lifetime living with the damages done, physically and mentally. All the while, this monster continues on a pathway of destruction to others. No punishment, no consequences. Why?

I truly hope that the judge brings the hammer down on this sick woman. She clearly has NO respect for the parents of the children involved in both of her cases. She thinks she's above the law!! If she doesn't get prison time for this, kids everywhere will think its ok to do what she does!! Heidi Fain MUST BE STOPPED!!!!

I cant believe that there are so many parents that knew about this woman and didnt do something about it! The blame goes deeper than just this woman.

If authorities won't do something with this stupid cow, the parents need to get together and give her a GI party with some socks and frozen oranges, she needs to be stopped, I don't care who she is or friends with or sleeping with, she needs to be stopped before she kills a kid or more. If my kid was involved, she would need some plastic surgery on her freaking face, I can guarantee you that, you can do a lot to me, but put my kids in danger....NO

Seems female teachers and moms can do anything and get away with it. If a man did this he'd be in jail for life. Double standard nowadays - we glorify female perverts and call them cougars while men are dirty old men. They need to be dirty old women.

How many times do they have to arrest this woman before she kills someone? She almost killed my nephew last summer. Who's nephew/niece will be next? She needs detox, therapy, and jail before anyone else is hurt/killed. Enough already!
