Posted: Updated:
WEST DES MOINES (AP) - Authorities say they arrested an Iowa woman accused of being drunk on hand sanitizer and kicking her daughter.

Jennifer Jane Olney, 48, was charged Tuesday with child endangerment and one other crime, the Des Moines Register reports.

The West Des Moines Police Department says officers responded to a report of medication and alcohol hand sanitizer overdose at Olney's residence.

Police say they noticed she was acting aggressively and slurred her speech, and determined that she couldn't care for her daughter.

According to a police report, Olney was ordered to either check herself into a hospital or turn her daughter over to human services, after which police say she kicked her daughter's leg and pushed officers as they made the arrest.

Olney's daughter was left in her grandfather's care.
