Far-Out Tales of Horrifying Parental Negligence

The American-Statesman reports from Austin:
Wednesday, June 21, 2006

A Cedar Park woman has been arrested on charges of child endangerment after her 3-year-old son ate nine candies that were laced with LSD during a weekend party.

Ashli Rene Freas, 22, was released from the Williamson County Jail on Tuesday after posting $10,000 bail. She was arrested Monday after her son was taken to Children's Hospital, hallucinating.

Cedar Park police, in a written affidavit that lists reasons for an arrest, said Freas had taken her son with her to a party at an apartment in the Parmer Lane and Duval Road area in Northwest Austin on Sunday, along with her boyfriend. As Freas and the boyfriend were outside with friends, the boy was inside with another adult. At one point, the man who leased the apartment noticed that his roll of SweeTarts, which were laced with the drug, was open and nine pieces were missing, the affidavit says.

Freas took the boy to her Cypress Creek home and called friends to come to the home. The affidavit says a friend, not Freas, eventually called 911 after the boy had been hallucinating for more than an hour, and police noted this as one reason to arrest Freas.

Police are still investigating the incident.
Putting aside the obvious "this woman should be locked up and not allowed to produce more offspring" commentary, we'd like to know if the owner of the SweeTarts is gonna ask the kid to fork over some cash for his dope.

Do you still fancy Pandas? Maybe you have the right idea.

Honestly, who doesn't still fancy pandas? Unless you intend the British usage of 'fancy,' in which case, HELLS yeah.

Didn't GF mention that Pandamory was just around the corner?

The American-Statesman "reports" that the child allegedly was allowed to hallucinate for an hour before 911 was called... says who? Were THEY there? Were the police THERE during all this to witness the passing of the supposed hour? If so, why didn't THEY do anything??????

You can't believe everything you read in the papers, nor everything the police (who were NOT present during the incident) allege. There is NO PROOF the child's mother did anything negligent, but the Court of Saint Statesman has convicted her already. It's a shame people are so quick to believe everything they read as if it were factual, personally witnessed information.
