Larry W. Beeton and Allison R. Drinkall are being held in the Ada County Jail on a felony charges of injury to child after Boise police say they found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in their Bench area home early Monday morning.
The drugs and paraphernalia were in the reach of the four kids (two teenagers and two toddlers) who lived inside the home, located in the 5200 block of West Morris Hill Road, so the kids were declared by police to be in imminent danger and placed in the custody of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, according to reports.
Police were sent to the home around 2:40 a.m. Monday after getting a 911 call about screaming and yelling and arrived to find Drinkall, 35, standing outside, wearing only underwear and talking incoherently, according to reports. Police say she kicked an officer who was trying to talk to her several times before Beeton, 42, came outside.
Police say both Beeton and Drinkall appeared intoxicated. Drinkall did tell police they could go inside and search the home, which is when officers found the drugs and kids inside, according to reports.
Police arrested the couple a short time later and booked them into the jail. They are both also charged with a felony count of possession of a controlled substance. Drinkall is charged with a felony count of assault or battery on a law enforcement officer.
Beeton and Drinkall will make their initial court appearances Tuesday afternoon.
The crime of felony injury to child is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
