Rachelle reportedly said she felt ‘horrible’ about the incident, telling police, ‘… I guess it was a joke and a stupid mistake that wasn’t really funny.’
Meanwhile, her fiance Tyler Lee has also been arrested after he confessed to selling weed to a local dispensary. He denied being present when his son was given a dose of weed.
He has been released on bail pending the filing of charges, while Rachelle is still held on a $5,000 bond. Her son and 5-year old child have been placed on protective care.
