Gallup, March 24

A Gallup woman who called police to report a domestic disturbance found herself in jail a couple of hours later for abandonment of a child.

Brittany Tsosie, 20, had called police at 7:30 pm on March 24 to complain about how she was treated by her mother and two other women earlier in the day. She said the four got into an argument about her baby.

As Patrolman Patrick Largo was interviewing Tsosie, he began seeing signs she may have been intoxicated and found out that she was taking care of her baby by herself at the time. He asked how much she had to drink and she said that she only had two beers because she was taking care of her child.
