Mom arrested for BUI, breastfeeding under the influence

Waitress fired for calling police


Tasha Adams didn’t think she was doing anything wrong. “I didn’t know it was illegal. If I knew it was illegal, I wouldn’t have done it.”

Tasha was arrested after a waitress called police when she saw her breastfeeding her six month old with several drinks in front of her.

“I watched the bartender make them, looked like Long Islands. But, regardless if it was that or not, then it was strong liquor that was in those glasses,” Jackie Connors told ABC News 20/20.

Adams admitted to drinking two beers at a Conway, Arkansas restaurant while she and her family had dinner after a funeral.

“I did drink. I did breastfeed,” Adams admitted to 20/20.

Arkansas doesn’t have a law that addresses drinking and breastfeeding. However, officers on-site said they decided to make the arrest for child endangerment.

Since that time, the Conway city attorney has decided to drop the child endangerment charge due to insufficient evidence. Shortly after the incident, Connors was fired from her job at the restaurant.
