Kentucky Mom Records Video Forcing Her 14-Year-Old Daughter To Drink More Alcohol

At one point in the video, the daughter falls out of her chair.

The video starts, and 14-year-old girl falls face first out of her chair and groans. Her Mother, Miranda Polston, laughs. 

We can get a million dollars for this video from MTV, the mother said while the whole thing was being recorded, according to the Lexington Herald Leader. Several people could be heard laughing in the video.

The 34-year-old Kentucky mom was arrested and charged with felony first degree criminal abuse.

Police received an anonymous tip about the video and obtained a copy, which led to the charge. 

Polston caught her daughter drinking alcohol on March 10, and to punish her, forced her to drink more.

Somerset police spokesperson Capt. Mike Correll told KALB that Polston was trying to teach her daughter a lesson.

"Ms. Polston told our detective that she was trying to prove to her daughter that alcohol was bad by forcing her to drink more alcohol," Correll said.

The video recorded sounds of the girl gurgling as her mother forces alcohol on her.

"She tells her mother no, screams it out a couple of times in the video," Correll said. "And the mother continues to force her to drink alcohol."  

The teen was held in a chair so she wouldn't fall over, according to WKYT. A male juvenile held her up while another offered her more to drink. Authorities said they will not release the name of the girl because she is a juvenile. They won't release the video for the same reason.

Polston was also charged with violating her probation, for a previous unrelated charge. Social Services opened a case on the incident, but Polston doesn't have custody of the teen, Correll told the Ledger. 

Polston told WKYT that she's being treated unfairly and she plans to fight the charge.
