BURRILLVILLE, R.I.-According to CBS affiliate WPRI, police arrested Paul White, a transgender that goes by Christina, after she allegedly poured shots of vodka for her daughter and her two 10-year-old friends.

The three girls ended up in the hospital — one girl had a blood alcohol content level of 0.084.

The 5th grade girls have recovered, but the parents of the children are outraged.

Police said they believe this is not the first time that White had served the children alcohol.

White is denying serving any alcohol to the children and gives her apologies. “I would like to apologize to [the girls’ parents]…. I am very sorry that happened in my house.”-White

She is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday in Providence District Court.

In the mean time, Whites daughter is in the custody of the Department of Children, Youth and Families.

White is charged with procuring alcohol for a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

While the investigation is ongoing, White is not allowed to contact any children under the age of 18 throughout the duration of her trial.
