An Atlanta couple nearly killed their baby boy when they gave him a cup full of Coke and 40 proof brandy, police said.
Jasmin Briana Moore and William Chester Hickson were arrested for child cruelty this week after their 2-year-old son stopped breathing last weekend, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
They rushed the drunken tot to a nearby hospital, where doctors discovered the boy’s blood alcohol content was 0.29 — more than three times the legal limit for adult drivers in Georgia, police said.
According to their arrest warrants, Moore and Hickson made the toddler a cocktail out of Coca-Cola and 40 proof Paul Masson Brandy on Oct. 4. He drank until he became unresponsive, police said.
Hickson was arrested Monday, and police nabbed Moore a day later. The two were charged with cruelty to children in the first degree.
Each parent is being held on a $75,000 bond.
