BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (AP) — Police in Burrillville are investigating a local couple's allegations that their neighbor got their 10-year-old daughter and two other fifth-grade girls drunk.
Chrystal Chamberlain says her daughter and two friends ended up in the hospital Monday night. She says a Breathalyzer test showed her daughter's blood-alcohol level was 0.084. All three girls are OK.
The neighbor hasn't been charged. She admitted to TV news reporters to getting drunk while watching the girls Monday, but denied giving the children alcohol and said they must have gotten into the booze when she wasn't looking. Her daughter was one of the three girls involved, and the Department of Children, Youth and Families is investigating.
The other girls' parents, however, allege the neighbor bought vodka for the girls and even poured them shots.
