An Oak Ridge woman faces four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for allegedly providing her son and his friends alcohol.

Misti Dawn Butler, 38, was arrested by Oak Ridge police on April 30.

She’s scheduled to appear in Roane County General Sessions Court in June.

According to the warrant, a therapist told Craig Jordan that his son admitted to drinking while at Butler’s house for spring break.

The warrant said Jordan became suspicious and checked his son’s phone.

That’s where he found a 57-minute recording of his son and his friends talking about drinking and playing beer pong with Butler.

The other parents also contacted police about the alleged underage drinking.

“The other juveniles involved also provided written statements with their parents’ permis-sion testifying that Butler gave all the juveniles
that were present what she referred to as ‘child’s alcohol,’” the warrant said.
