MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. - A woman has been charged with child abuse after deputies say she got into a fight with a 13-year-old girl that she had been drinking with.

Deputies were alerted to a vehicle in which a caller said two women were fighting shortly before 9pm Monday.  Deputies located the vehicle stopped in the 4900 block of 31st Street West and found that the two occupants had gotten out of the car and were fighting in a yard.

Deputies say Kellie Baker, who turned 43 years old Monday, got up and tried to get in her car and leave, while a 13-year-old female remained on the ground with a bloody nose and crying.

The 13-year-old's blood alcohol was measured at .15, and the girl admitted to drinking with Baker.

Baker was charged with Child Abuse, and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
