Mother Arrested For Giving Wine To Baby

She says she was just trying to put her baby to sleep, but a mother's method got her arrested at the state fair.

The sheriff's department in Jefferson County says Kathryn Bowen bought a cup of wine at the horse show at Freedom Hall, but Bowen apparently didn't intend to drink it, or drink all of it.

Two police officers were watching nearby.

"The deputy and the corrections officer observed her remove the bottle from a bag, uncap the bottle, place the contents of the glass into the bottle and then handed it to the baby who then proceeded to consume it," said Major Chris Hancock of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

Officers quickly arrested Bowen.

She's charged with endangering the welfare of a minor, a misdemeanor.
