Transcript for Woman Explains Arrest for Breastfeeding After Drinking Beer
with an Arkansas woman who was charged with endangering the welfare of a child for breast-feeding after drinking alcohol in a restaurant. The charges dropped last week but the issue of breast-feeding and drinking, a very real one. ABC's juju Chang spoke and she has the story. Reporter: Less than an hour outside of Little Rock lies the tiny town of toad suck, Arkansas, population roughly 300. It's also home for Sasha Adams a stay at home mother of three. How much do your kids mean to you. More than anything in the world. Reporter: Their baby Ana in tow she and her parents stopped for dinner. I had a beer and then I had another one later on. Reporter: But that's not what Jackie Connors said she saw. She showed up early for an after-hours morning. There were three drinks in front of her already when I got there. Reporter: Jackie who has an infant daughter of her own consulted her own mom. She texted me back and said call the police. Reporter: Just after 11:00 that night police arrived at the restaurant. And they said, ma'am, we got a report that you are drinking alcohol while breast-feeding and I said, okay. I didn't know that it was illegal. Reporter: It isn't illegal. The officers made a judgment call and arrested her for endangering the welfare of the child. Her child. In your opinion you did nothing wrong. Right. Reporter: But was she in fact endangering baby Ana? Once in a while to consume a drink probably will not do any harm for the baby. Even the American academy of pediatrics does not say zero tolerance. Correct, they don't say zero. Reporter: The district attorney recently dropped the charge. The management of gusano's wouldn't respond but the waitress Jackie Conners was fired the week after calling the cops on Tasha. If I was ever in that situation again I would do the same thing. That baby can't speak up for itself. I'll say it till the day I die, I was sober enough to breast-feed my kid. All right. We want to get right into our social square powered by Samsung and talk to you. Here's what you had to say about the story. We asked should a mom be allowed to breast-feed and drink and Pam said no. That is the same as putting alcohol in a baby's bottle. If she wants to drink stop breast-feeding and get some bottles and formula. Mearl said "Let's leave it for the mom to decide. She knows best." More on "20/20" at 10:00 P.M. Tomorrow.
