CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. -- A North Carolina woman has been arrested after police say she poured vodka in a 7-year-old boy's eyes at a hotel pool in Florida.

WFLA-TV reports Clearwater police say 23-year-old Roseanna Marie Kiser of Huntersville, North Carolina, was arrested Tuesday and charged with child abuse and battery on a law enforcement officer.

Police say Kiser was intoxicated at the Sheraton Sand Key Hotel in Clearwater Beach when she became upset with the boy because he splashed water near her.

Police say she opened a bottle of vodka and poured some of it onto the boy's eyes and face before grabbing and pushing him into the pool.

An arrest report says Kiser kicked a police officer in the groin with her foot during her arrest. It's unclear whether she has an attorney.
