9-month-old Had Blood-Alcohol Level Four Times Legal Limit
Carrollton Ga police found a baby sitter accused of feeding a 9-month-old boy wine, causing his blood-alcohol level to exceed four times the legal limit for an adult.
Carrollton police Sgt. Tony Johnson says authorities have found 40-year-old Tammy Demice Truitt of Carrollton. She was being sought on charges of first-degree cruelty to children and reckless conduct.
Police say Truitt was called to watch the baby and four other children ages 3 to 9 earlier this week when their mother had to leave town to care for a sick relative who has since died.
Doctors said the baby's blood-alcohol content of .33 was considered a life-threatening condition.
Johnson said the baby was released from the hospital on Wednesday and is doing fine.

Police say they caught two teens that broke into Sacramento home, and the key to tracking them down was a homework assignment left behind. It's become a common crime in one Natomas neighborhood. But, when a pair of teens tried to break into a home this past week they made a big mistake. "Well, they say going to school is beneficial. In this case, it was beneficial for us," says Sgt. Norm Leong. The teens broke into a home with someone still inside, and when they heard the call to police they apparently got scared. "Suddenly these kids were worried about getting caught, so they started making their getaway," says Sgt. Leong. The two teens started jumping over neighboring fences, and that's when they left their backpacks behind
