CHURCH HILL – A woman who allegedly brought her child to the Church Hill McDonald’s drive-thru early Thursday morning while under the influence of drugs was charged with child endangerment.

At 1:30 a.m. Thursday, CHPD Officer Kathryn Metcalf responded to the McDonald’s at 201 Silver Lake Road on a report of an intoxicated female driver in the drive-thru with a child in the vehicle.

Upon her arrival Metcalf located Chelsea Lea Greene, 31, 431 Old Stage Road, Church Hill, parked in front of the restaurant waiting for an employee to bring out her order.

Greene’s 10-year-old child was seated in the vehicle with her, and Metcalf reportedly observed Greene to appear under the influence of narcotics.

“Ms. Greene appeared to have slurred speech, squinted eyes, and a thick froth around her mouth,” Metcalf said. “During conversation with Ms. Greene, she admitted to taking prescription Buprenorphine and Xanax earlier in the day, which she admitted she was not prescribed.”

Upon searching her vehicle Metcalf allegedly located a week-old prescription bottle for 56 Buprenorphine in her purse containing only 6.5 pills, as well as syringe.

“I then recovered a prescription bottle from inside the driver’s door panel containing an unknown liquid which Ms. Greene stated was urine, which was to be used to falsify a drug screen,” Metcalf added. “A series of field sobriety tests was then conducted on Ms. Greene to which she preformed poorly.”

Aside from child endangerment Greene was charged with DUI, falsification of a drug screen and possession of drug paraphernalia.
