A Houston mother was behind bars Thursday after her toddler was discovered to be drunk from a popular alcoholic drink.
The Houston Chronicle reports that Lashawnda Evette Allen, 32, was arrested after her 18-month-old daughter drank Four Loko and was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.09, which is an amount that makes it illegal for adults to drive.
Allen told police that she was drinking while her two children were asleep in the bed next to her when she fell asleep and set the can beside her. When she woke up, Allen told police she saw her daughter stumbling around an empty can of Four Loko on the ground.
The popular alcoholic drink have been the subject of controversy for allegedly being marketed to minors with its mix of caffeine and alcohol.
In November 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned Four Loko along with other alcoholic energy drinks. Since then, Four Loko's makers reformulated the drink to cut out the caffeine and other stimulants.
