Girard Police have charged a couple after officers say a woman started acting “out of control” in a car after snorting a line of drugs from a toddler’s tablet.

Fifty-six-year-old David Searcy of Mineral Ridge pleaded “not guilty” Monday to a child endangering charge filed by police late last month.

Officers investigating a report of a woman acting irrationally on May 28 say they found Searcy and 31-year-old Natalee Good of Youngstown in a car on West Prospect Street.

According to police, Searcy said he had taken Good, who he described as his girlfriend, to a house in Youngstown where she bought drugs.

Searcy claims Good began acting irrationally after she had “done a line of drugs” off the tablet of a three-year-old girl, who was crying in the back seat of the car.

Police say they removed the child from the car as Good began going in and out of consciousness.

An officer administered the opioid reversal antidote Narcan, allowing Good to stabilize.

Police say they found two $5 bills in the car. One of the bills was rolled up, and the other was folded with a rock-like substance inside which Good claimed was fentanyl. Officers also found a crack pipe.

The child was turned over to a relative.

Good was taken to a hospital and has yet to appear before a judge to answer charges of child endangering and possession of drug paraphernalia.
