Police said Brown promised to sell her infant to two different people if they would pay her fines and court costs in an unrelated drug case.

Brown was charged in July with nonpayment of fines and first-degree possession of a controlled substance.

According to Brown's arrest citation in this case, an agreement with another person to sell the baby to cover legal expenses "fell through."

Child Protective Services took emergency custody of all three children.
