WLWT obtained court records that say the babysitter, Donna Muthert, 65, was looking after a baby and did not respond to someone knocking at the door and ringing the bell. Delhi Township Fire Department later forced their way into the home.

Officials with the fire department found her passed out next to a child who had “soiled herself” and was only wearing a shirt with no diaper on, according to WLWT.

WXIX says once Muthert was awake, she said to officers, “This was fresh this morning,” while pointing to an empty 1.75-liter vodka bottle. Muthert has been booked into jail on charges of child endangerment and is being held on $25,000 bail, WXIX reported.

Muthert has had other run-ins with the law regarding alcohol, WXIX says. She was charged with driving under the influence in January 2014 after a crash. She pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of reckless operation of a vehicle and was ordered to an intervention program.
