ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A local 5-year-old boy told police he would get so thirsty that he was forced to drink from the toilet. Police only learned of that after he showed up to the hospital with a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit.

Parents charged, suspected of severe child abuse
The boy had such a high blood-alcohol level because police say he was drinking mouthwash. Police also found injuries over his body. His parents are now behind bars.
Tyriese Howard and his live-in girlfriend Breya Allen appeared in front of a judge for the first time Friday. Both of them are facing allegations of child abuse involving at least two of the three children who lived in a home with them at the Westwood Village Apartments.
