LOVELAND, Colo. -- The Loveland mother allegedly caught a on cell phone camera repeatedly feeding wine to her toddler and laughing about it is facing child abuse charges.

Loveland police filed misdemeanor child abuse charges against 26-year-old Alexandra Bremkamp.

The charges stem from video taped evidence obtained by the FOX31 Denver investigative team. The person who shot it and asked to remain anonymous also turned the video in to the Loveland Police Department.

In the 1 minute video, Bremkamp acknowledges she’s being taped and said “this could be incriminating.” Her 18-month-old son is seen drinking at least four gulps from her glass. The person shooting the video asks her to stop and Bremkamp says, “it’s only wine,” and says there’s nothing wrong with what she is doing.

Medical experts say even 2 ounces of wine can intoxicate a toddler. It can also cause seizures, confusion and brain damage in a child less than 28 pounds.

Our calls to Bremkamp were not returned.

Bremkamp will make her first court appearance in Larimer county court on August 20.
