A Florida woman was arrested after she allegedly gave her 14-year-old son methamphetamine, according to deputies.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said Cheryl Ann Asiq, 38, gave the teen meth on three separate occasions.
Deputies said the woman would hold the foil containing the meth, heated it, and then let the boy inhale the vapors with a straw.
Another family member called 911, saying she spoke to the teen over the phone and realized he was hallucinating from the drugs. According to the affidavit, the family member also spoke to Asiq over the phone, who said she just gave the child a Xanax pill.
First responders arrived at the family’s home and took the teenager to Trinity Hospital for treatment. One of the first responders told police that Asiq asked if she would be going to jail.
Deputies said Asiq called the victim while he was being treated and told him to lie about where he got the drugs.
However, authorities heard her admit that the meth belonged to her during their investigation.
She initially said the teenager got the drugs while she was in the shower, but later admitted to giving him the drugs herself, thinking it would help him relax.
Asiq was arrested on three counts of aggravated child abuse and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
