Way to start your child off on the wrong path early in the game. 44-year-old Gretchen Lynn Kinnear has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor after giving her 4-year-old son shots of beer at a bar over the weekend. A witness called police on Saturday night after Kinnear was seen giving the boy beer at McHale's Irish Pub in Fort Mill, SC

Kinnear admitted to giving her son beer before, which the boy described as "tea" that made him "dizzy and laugh." She also said that she drank wine a few times a week, and occasionally gave some to her son, but not to get him drunk. Because that makes sense, right?
