Couple arrested after getting their 2-year-old drunk

Today’s award for great parenting goes to William Hickson and Jasmin Moore of Cobb County, Ga., for giving their 2-year-old son so much booze that he developed alcohol poisoning.

According tp the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

The boy, whose name was not released, became unresponsive and stopped breathing before being taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, arrest warrants … stated. The boy’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.29, more than three times the legal limit for drivers in Georgia, police said.

Moore and Hickson, who live in separate homes, were arrested and charged with cruelty to children in the first degree. According to the arrest warrants, the incident took place Saturday night:

Said accused did give the victim, a 2-year-old male child, a mixed alcoholic beverage which consisted of Coca-Cola and 40 proof Paul Masson Brandy, or said accused had knowledge that said child was drinking said alcoholic beverage and allowed the child to continue drinking in the presence of said accused.

Both Moore and Hickson are being held on $75,000 bond.
