Grand Forks mother who breast-fed baby while drunk arrested again

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - A Grand Forks mother who pleaded guilty in a case of breast-feeding while drunk has been arrested on a warrant stemming from her previous arrest just hours after her sentencing on a child neglect charge. County deputies arrested 26-year-old Stacey Anvarinia on Tuesday on a warrant that resulted from her run-in with city police Friday night, the same day she received a suspended sentence for breast-feeding her 6-week-old baby while drunk.

Officers arrested her Friday after receiving a complaint that she had allegedly slashed the tire of a pickup in the parking lot of her apartment building. She was released the next day after posting bail, then arrested Tuesday on a warrant for criminal mischief and preventing arrest.

She was arrested while visiting her child at the county social services department.

In February, Anvarinia was arrested after police saw her breast-feeding the baby while drunk and holding the child upside down. The case grabbed international attention.
