Police in Louisville have arrested a woman at the Kentucky State Fair after an officer saw her pour wine into her baby’s feeding bottle.
WDRB-TV reports 40-year-old Kathryn Bowen of Missouri was released from jail Tuesday on her own recognizance after her arrest on Monday.
Police said an officer saw Bowen buy wine at Freedom Hall, pour it into the baby bottle and give it to her 11-month-old daughter.
The police report said Bowen told the officer she gave the child wine to help her sleep.
Bowen was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and the child was placed in protective custody.
Louisville court records did not list an attorney for Bowen. She is scheduled for arraignment on Friday.
