Valerie Topete - Mother Tires Of Toddler Reaching For Pitcher Of Beer, Fills His Sippy Cup With Beer

Phoenix, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) - Valerie Marie Topete, a 36-year-old Phoenix resident was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly put beer in her 2-year-old son's sippy cup and allowed the toddler to drink up.

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, officers were called to Peter Piper Pizza after a waitress reported that she saw Topete pour beer from a pitcher into a child's sippy cup, and the child drank from it. The mother then left the child alone at the table with the alcohol.

When officers questioned Topete, she admitted to giving her son some beer because "he kept reaching for the pitcher."

Topete initially denied that the child drank from the sippy cup but later agreed that the child "might have" consumed the alcohol.

She was apprehended while the child was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated. The toddler was then released to his father who was also in the restaurant that day.

Topete was booked into jail and charged with child abuse.
