Woman passes out in vehicle
By Tom Marshall
Senior Advocate writer

An Ashland woman is in jail after she was arrested last week allegedly passed out under the influence of drugs with a 5-year-old child in the back seat of her running vehicle.

Kelli Catt, 40, is charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, endangering the welfare of a minor and first-degree possession of heroin, second offense.

She pleaded not guilty to those charges Monday in Montgomery County District Court. A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Dec. 5. Public defender Taylor Lansdale has been assigned to represent her.
Mt. Sterling police received a call about a woman allegedly passed out in a vehicle in the McDonald’s parking lot off Maysville Road at 11:41 p.m. Nov, 22, MSPD Sgt. Terry Johnson said.

When police arrived the vehicle was still running, Johnson said.
Inside the vehicle, police reportedly found the child wrapped in a blanket in the backseat. A syringe was reportedly found between the seats and narcotics in Catt’s possession, Johnson said.

Both Catt and the child were taken to St. Joseph Mt. Sterling Hospital to be checked out, he said.

Catt was later released to the custody of the Montgomery County Regional Jail.

Social Services was called and turned the child over to a grandparent. The child was unharmed, Johnson said.
