COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Police arrested a mother who they said overdosed in a gas station bathroom while her 1-year-old child was with her.
Authorities said Deasa Smith, 25, entered a Circle K gas station on Petzinger Road at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Later, medics were called to the scene after someone called 911 to report a person overdosed.
Authorities charged Smith with child endangering.
Two women who identified themselves as Smith’s sisters said they are aware Smith has a problem with heroin, and her family has been trying repeatedly to get her the help she needs.
