A 32-year-old Lake Charles woman was arrested, accused of cruelty to a 17-year-old boy with medical issues.
Deputies with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office say that on November 20, 2018, detectives responded to a home on S. Franklin Street in Lake Charles in reference to a 17-year-old boy with medical issues who was extremely thin and appeared to be malnourished.
The boy was transported to the hospital and placed into ICU.
A search of the home allegedly revealed unused medications that were prescribed to the boy. Detectives attempted to take 32-year-old Miracle Chatman into custody at which time deputies say she resisted and committed a battery on two detectives.
Chatman was booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with cruelty to the infirmed and two counts of battery on a police officer.
Bond is set at $14,000.
The 17-year-old boy remains in the hospital.
