I'm not sure of your situation here. It looks as though your husband is providing your child with alcohol. Assuming we are not talking about a very young child or the occasional sip of beer for an older child, these actions are harmful to the health and welfare of your child.
If this is the case I can only assume that you have already confronted him on this and possibly had other family or friends do the same. If he has continued with this behavior I don't see any choice but to report him to the police. Providing alcohol to a minor is a crime; not to mention what it may be doing to your child. If found guilty aside from other penalties, he'll get court ordered counseling. Sounds as though he needs it.
Best of luck.
