Man Arrested After Shooting Dope At Son’s School

A 29-year-old Sheboygan man was arrested on child neglect and drug charges after being found passed out in his car at his 6-year-old son’s school, with an infant in the car.

 According to, the man’s son had just been let out of school, and the child found him slumped over the steering wheel in the car.  The child came back to the school crying because he could not wake his father up.

 A teacher went back to the car with the child, and was unable to wake the man.  The teacher saw a syringe in his hand and the 8-month-old baby crying.

 A police search found 6 foils with heroin, a syringe, and a burnt spoon.  The man’s arms showed several needle marks, including one still oozing with blood.

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
