MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) -- A Moorhead woman is accused of being drunk while caring for children at a day care she operates in her home.
Fifty-four-year-old Jayne Cote is charged with four gross misdemeanor counts of neglect or endangerment of a child.
Clay County Attorney Brian Melton says when police performed a welfare check at the day care on Oct. 2, Cote's blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent. That's more than twice Minnesota's legal limit for driving of 0.08 percent.
KFGO-AM reports court documents say the investigation began after a concerned parent notified Clay County Social Services.
Social Services has temporarily suspended Cote's day care license pending the outcome of the case.
Cote's home phone is disconnected.
