After searching the room as one of the provisons of Asher's probation, the officers located illegal drugs in the room at the Motor Center Motel. They also located Asher's 3-month-old son in a lethargic state.
After contacting DHS personnel and advising them of Pickle's observations, the child was taken into DHS custody and was later placed in foster care. A medical screening of the childs blood tested positive for diazepam (valium). This was one of the illegal drugs found in the room.
March 29, Sharp County Detective Sergeant Ken Guidry and Arkansass State Police Special Agent Wendall Jines interviewed Asher. Asher admitted during the interview that she had given her baby valium on two different occasions, because the child had severe colic.
A report from the Sharp County Sheriff's Department states that the child has recovered from the incident and is doing well.
