A Brad Paisley fan says she got booted from the country singer’s Thursday concert in Chula Vista for breastfeeding her baby. Local law enforcement tell a different story, saying they acted in the best interests of the woman’s child.
10News decided against publishing the name of the woman involved in the incident.
The confrontation got caught on video, which now can be seen on YouTube.com. Viewers can watch a police officer asking the woman to leave and hear her saying a security guard insisted she stop breast feeding her infant.
“Your child doesn’t have hearing protection on,” the officer can be heard saying. “The crowd is going to start surging forward. Where you’re at, your child can get crushed. So we’re afraid of your child getting crushed, and we’re afraid of your child’s eardrums being hurt, OK. That is borderline, probably, child endangerment.”
