A Lincoln woman has been arrested for allegedly beating her 14-year-old daughter after the girl tried to take away her mother's alcohol. The 31-year-old mother faces a child abuse charge.
Police say the girl returned home after school on Monday to find her mother drinking and tried to take the alcohol. Officers say the mother hit her daughter 30 times in the face, neck and chest. Arresting officers say the woman's blood-alcohol level was more than three times the legal driving limit of .08.
The woman's daughter and a 6-year-old child were taken into temporary protective custody. Court documents say the mother has a history of alcoholism and leaving her children with others and not returning to pick them up.
