LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville mother is facing felony charges after she was allegedly found high on narcotics while she was taking care of her 5-year-old son.
According to an arrest report, someone called the Kentucky State Police abuse hotline to report that 26-year-old Megan L. Mattingly was intoxicated when she picked up her child from school.
Louisville Metro Police responded to the complaint and showed up at Mattingly's home on Dixie Garden Drive, near the intersection of Dixie Hwy. and Ashby Lane, shortly before 2 a.m. on Wednesday.
Initially, Mattingly refused to let police search her home, so officers had to obtain a search warrant before doing so.
Police say officers could see "narcotics related items" in plain view on a table in the living room. They also allegedly found several pills, marijuana and a pipe used to smoke meth.
Mattingly had custody of her 5-year-old son at the time, but an officer "could tell that she was under the influence of narcotics."
Mattingly allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana.
Police say she "failed [to] use reasonable diligence in caring for her child."
She was arrested and charged with possession of controlled substances, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of a controlled substance that is not in its proper container, according to an arrest report.
