MILLINGTON, TN -
(WMC-TV) - A Mid-South mother was arrested after police officers smelled beer on her toddler's breath.
Police say they were initially called to Brandi Jackson's home because someone reported she was fighting with her son.
While there, a concerned citizen told officers the little girl's breath smelled like alcohol.
"The officer went over there and picked the child up and could smell it on the child," Millington Police Inspector Christopher Coleman.
Investigators say Jackson and her boyfriend were drinking beer Saturday from 10 a.m. until officers showed up at their house after 7 p.m.
According to a police report, officers were told the couple could have "mistakenly left an open bottle on the table. Jackson stated that (her daughter) might have thought that it was okay to drink from the bottle because she had seen Jackson do it."
Millington police say this is not the first time Jackson has been in trouble.
"She's been in and out of jail six or seven times over the last five years probably," said Coleman.
Jackson is charged with child abuse and neglect.
"Misdemeanor or felony to me it's serious. I mean anytime you're dealing with a child , 2 years old, 6 years old, 12 years old, it's serious," said Coleman.
Jackson posted a $10,000 bond.
A judge sent this case to the grand jury for consideration.
Police say the 2-year-old child was checked out by doctors. She is okay and is staying with family while DCS investigates.
