CARROLLTON, Ga. – Carrollton police are searching for a baby sitter they say fed a 9-month-old boy wine, causing the baby's blood-alcohol level to exceed four times the legal limit for an adult.
Carrollton police Sgt. Tony Johnson said authorities are searching for 40-year-old Tammy Demice Truitt of Carrollton on charges of first degree cruelty to children and reckless conduct for giving the baby alcohol.
Police said Truitt was the regular baby sitter for the baby and four other children, ages 9, 7, 5 and 3, but was called when the mother had to leave town for a family emergency.
Doctor's said the baby's blood-alcohol content of .33 is considered a life-threatening condition.
Johnson said the baby was released from the hospital on Wednesday and is doing fine.
