‘Baby Girl’ high on bath salts, arrested & can’t remember her kids’ names

29 year old Baby Girl Drinkardis, yes, her name is Baby Girl, was preliminarily charged with neglect of a dependent and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, each a Class D felony carrying a standard 18-month prison term.

According to the report, city police were dispatched to check the welfare of a mother “on the street with her three children.”

When they arrived, officers observed Baby Girl, who was holding her newborn son, standing on the sidewalk with her two other children, both younger than 5.

Baby Girl — who gave the infant to a friend while speaking with police — reportedly became “irrational,” “was crying uncontrollably” and “had trouble keeping her balance … and forming complete sentences” as she spoke with Muncie police officer Kyle Monroe.

One woman told police Drinkard “had been using bath salts the last few hours and was acting weird when she was inside her house.” She said Drinkard had been ingesting Crystal Clean, a chemical cleaner.

Drinkard reportedly admitted to using bath salts — which are known to cause paranoia, agitation and hallucinations — but “thought it was legal for her to do so.”

“I informed her that using chemicals to obtain a high while caring for her children was not legal,” Monroe wrote.

According to the report, when asked for information about her children, Drinkard had difficulty spelling the name of one child and recalling the date of birth of another.

A search of Drinkard’s purse reportedly led to the discovery of several medications for which Drinkard did not have a proper prescription.

Monroe also found a pill bottle with prescription medication for Drinkard’s son. The prescription — which was filled with 30 pills on Tuesday — indicated Drinkard’s son should be given one pill per day, according to the report.

Drinkard’s three children were placed in the custody of their grandmother, according to the report.

Local court records reflect no recent charges or convictions for Drinkard. She was being held Sunday at the Delaware County jail under a $15,000 bond.
