Madison County deputies arrested a woman for first-degree wanton endangerment and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia after deputies responded to College Hill Road Friday when it was reported she was passed out on a front porch while a toddler was screaming and pulling her hair.
Megan West, 24, Irvine, was slumped over in a chair with her head between her knees, according to a citation. A witness noticed her, tried to wake her and called 911. West woke up after about five minutes of the witness shaking her and went inside a residence.
When deputies spoke with West, she had glassy eyes and slurred speech, but said she had not taken anything other than gabapentin earlier, the citation states. West went into a bedroom and allowed deputies to go with her, and they noticed a bent spoon with residue still on it and two syringe caps.
West also grabbed a small bag and threw it at a deputy, the citation states. It contained more syringes and another spoon with residue. While she was in her car, she gave deputies another bag that had pills, which West claimed were gabapentin and suboxone.
West was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where she remained Monday afternoon, according to online jail records.
