Kentucky authorities have arrested a woman after a 4-year-old child went unresponsive at school.

An arrest report says Winchester police went to Clark Regional Medical Center after receiving word of the girl's condition. The child tested positive for cocaine.

Police interviewed the mother, 31-year-old Anniquta Wright of Winchester, who told officers she let a friend sell cocaine at her home while kids were there. Her kids would even sit at the table with the friend. Her 2-year-old son also tested positive for cocaine.

Wright was charged with two counts of criminal abuse, and jail records show she was a fugitive from another state.

A previous version of the story stated the child was a boy. Police tell WKYT the child is a girl. The story is revised.
