Woman arrested for spiking baby’s bottle with wine

The Associated Press

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.

    “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.”

    This is one of the ones that did it and knew better, the cop seen her and she admitted to it and knew what she was talking about unless she was drinking it too at the time?

    Now what do you think might happen? My guess is a “treatment” program, and what will that be some mind altering drugs, or just counseling and parenting classes? Or do you think that they will take the baby and put it up for adoption?

    I was reading a book recently about why foster and adoptive parents should tell the kid the truth, some of what was in it seemed a good point against outside family foster care and against adoption especially.

    We will probably always have a few kids that really do need out of home care, but not the vast numbers that it is said that we do now. In those cases the parents need support just as much as any parent might.

    They also need to follow the same rules, have the same obligations that are expected of natural parents, and be held accountable for what they do just as any other parent is. Vice versa natural or birth parents deserve the same respect and support that any foster or adoptive parent is entitled to.

    Well, at least she wasn’t doing something horrible like breastfeeding in public.
