Juliette Dunn Arrested for Making 4-Year-Old Chug Beer, Giving 10-Month-Old Cocaine


Remember how angry you were at that mom yesterday who let her baby roll out of her subway car in its stroller as she engaged in a wig-pulling throw-down with a fellow subway rider? Well, that mom is like the world’s best mom compared to this new contender for our annual POS Parent award (this doesn’t actually exist but should): the Connecticut mom from henceforth dubbed “Cocaine Mom,” Juliette Dunn, 29, of Bridgeport, who was arrested by cops who said she forced her 4-year-old son to chug a 40 and gave her 10-month-old beer and cocaine. Lady, in this case, sharing is not caring.

According to the Connecticut Post, Dunn was at a park with a friend, Lisa Jefferson, when a neighbor complained to cops that she was feeding her kids beer at the playground. When police got close, they found an empty 40-ounce bottle of Steel Reserve next to the boy, and a baby bottle next to the baby that “contained a dark liquid that smelled strongly of an alcohol beverage.”

Witnesses claimed that Dunn’s friend, Lisa Jefferson, had handled the bottle to the 4-year-old and told him to chug it. Adding insult to injury, she called him an alcoholic when he finished it.

Further horrifying:

Both children were taken to Bridgeport Hospital where police said both the boy and girl tested positive for alcohol and the 10-month-old also had cocaine in her system. While being examined, police said the 4-year-old told a social worker he likes, “Natural Ice beer, Budweiser beer, but didn’t like the taste of Dog-Bite beer.”

The two women were charged on two counts of risk injury to a child and two counts of second-degree assault. Both are being held on $100,000 bonds. Dunn said she couldn’t understand “how her 10-month-old daughter tested positive for cocaine since she doesn’t breast feed her.”
