Angela Lee Summerall, 26-year old pregnant mother of 3 from St. Petersburg (Florida), was arrested for smoking crack cocaine in the presence of her 4-year-old son. She was in a 1996 Chevrolet SUV with her 4-year-old son and a man who has a lengthy arrest record on drug-related charges. The other man was not arrested.
The man told officers Summerall approached him and asked about buying crack cocaine, police said. He said he doesn’t know her beyond their interaction Wednesday, when he said he provided her an apparatus with which to smoke the drug.
As officers questioned Summerall, who also uses the alias Angela Kirchner, her husband, Robert, came to pick up the little boy. He told police he wasn’t surprised she had been caught smoking crack — this wasn’t the first time.
Summerall, who has served a year in state prison for cocaine possession, faces charges of child neglect and possession of drug paraphernalia. She’s being held at the Pinellas County Jail on a bail of more than $10,000. She told police she has smoked crack previously during her pregnancy, police spokesman Mike Puetz said.
Summerall told officers she had let the 4-year-old boy play outside the car while she was smoking inside, Puetz said.
