Father of child fights for custody after mother is charged in NC

A man is fighting for child custody after a video showed his ex-wife under the influence of heroin, according to WVNS TV on July 8.

Ashley Laner was charged with child neglect for the abandonment and improper treatment of their son. The video in reference showed Laner staggering near her car after police investigators and neighbors reported that she passed out inside her car from taking heroin.

The father of the child, Nathan Lewis, and his family drove 400 miles to Fayetteville, North Carolina to seek legal custody of Lewis’ 16-month-old son.
