MOORHEAD, Minn. (KFGO-AM) - A Moorhead woman is accused of being drunk while caring for children at a daycare she operates in her home. 54-year-old Jayne Cote is charged with four counts of neglect, or endangerment of a child.
Clay County Attorney Brian Melton says when police performed a welfare check at the daycare, Cote's blood-alcohol level was .18, which is more than twice the legal limit for driving.
Court documents say the investigation began after a concerned parent notified Clay County Social Services.
Cote's daycare is located at 2740 26th Street Circle South. Her daycare license has been temporarily suspended pending the outcome of the case.
