A five-year-old was treated at a California hospital and the mother was arrested after police learned the child was suffering from alcohol related problems.
According to News10.net, officers were called to the hospital for suspected child abuse.
The child's mother was questioned and arrested. Police did not indicate how the child consumed the alcohol, but the mother's aunt claimed the baby was given a bottle that the mother thought was water.
When the baby "started acting funny and throwing up," the child was taken to the hospital where it was revealed that the child consumed alcohol, possibly rum, via a bottle.
