A Bridgeport mother is charged with forcing her 4-year-old son to drink beer and giving beer and cocaine to her 10-month-old daughter.

29-year-old Juliette Dunn was arrested after a neighbor flagged down police and told them the woman was feeding beer to her children at the Success Village local playground.

Dunn and a 33-year-old companion, Lisa Jefferson, were arrested and charged with assault and risk of injury to a minor.

Witnesses told police that Dunn gave a 40-ounce bottle of beer to the boy and ordered him to chug it down. Both children tested positive for alcohol at a local hospital and the 10-month old tested positive for cocaine.

Dunn and Jefferson are both being held in lieu of $100,000 bonds.
