Mom Arrested for Drinking and Breastfeeding at Restaurant
CONWAY, Ark. — A woman was arrested and charged with child endangering after police said she breastfed her baby while drinking alcohol, according to ABC News.
Tasha Adams, 28, has three children, ages 6 years, 2 years and 8 months.
She lives in Toad Suck, Ark., where alcohol is banned.
But she was in Conway for a funeral, and when she and her family stopped to eat dinner, she said she had two beers, according to ABC News. Then she breastfed her baby.
A waitress reported it to police.
Arkansas doesn’t actually have a law against drinking and breastfeeding. But Adams was arrested anyway.
Last week, the charges against Adams were dropped because of a lack of evidence that she’d drank too much to properly take care of her child, according to ABC.
The waitress was eventually fired. According to published reports, the waitress said her managers had decided not to call police on Adams and became angry when the waitress took matters into her own hands.
