A Johnston County man is charged with child abuse after authorities say he got drunk while babysitting.

Detectives say Thomas Wilson was caring for his girlfriend's daughter when he drank nearly a half gallon of vodka. After the child's mother returned home, she and Wilson began fighting and the woman called 911.

Wilson allegedly told police, "It isn't a crime to drink in your home." Officers disagreed and charged him with child abuse and assault on a female.
