Server says she was fired for calling police about woman who was drinking while breastfeeding
A server at a Conway restaurant says she was fired after calling police to report a woman drinking alcohol while breastfeeding her child at the same time.
The server called police on 28-year-old Tasha Adams, who was arrested after the incident last Wednesday and charged with endangering the welfare of a minor.
It happened at Gusano’s Pizzeria off Dave Ward Drive in Conway.
Server Jackie Conners says she watched Adams consume drink after drink, and called police.
“Me being a mom, and just seeing something like that and seeing a baby that can’t speak for itself having a parent do something like that is just unacceptable,” Conners says.
Just a couple days later, Conners says, she was fired for taking the situation into her own hands.
A manager at Gusano’s said the call to police was not the reason she lost her job, but he declined to elaborate.
A police report from last Wednesday says the 7-month-old child was released to family members.
