California resident Samantha Delvalle and her boyfriend Raymond Maybry were arrested last Thursday on charges of child endangerment after Delvalle's two-year-old son was found to have dangerous levels of alcohol and methamphetamines in his bloodstream.

The toddler was taken to the Ukiah Valley Medical Center by his grandmother, who noticed that he appeared unwell and smelled of alcohol after she picked him up from Delvalle's home in Mendocino County.

When sheriff's deputies searched the home, they found Delvalle, 22, and Maybry, 21, intoxicated and with drug paraphernalia in areas easily accessible by a child.

Lt. Greg Van Patten of the Mendocino Country Sheriff's Department told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat that the two-year old is now living with his biological father while child protective services investigates the incident.

Maybry was released on $25,000 bail, but Delvalle remains incarcerated. Both are scheduled for a court hearing later this month.

Earlier this year, a woman in Washington state was arrested after her two-year-old died from ingesting a deadly amount of meth.
