Boy, 3, Hospitalized After Eating LSD-Laced SweeTarts Candy at Party

The mother of a 3-year-old boy was arrested after her son ate candy laced with LSD during a weekend party.

Ashli R. Freas, 22, was charged Monday with child endangerment after taking her son to a hospital. She was released Tuesday on $10,000 bond.

According to a police affidavit, Freas and her boyfriend took her son to a party at an apartment. They went outside, leaving the boy inside with another adult.

The apartment's leaseholder noticed that his roll of SweeTarts, which had been laced with the hallucinogenic drug, was open and that nine candies were missing.

Freas took her son home, then to the hospital after he began hallucinating.

Chris Van Deusen, spokesman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, said the boy will be placed in a foster home after he's released from the hospital.
