It was a disturbing Saturday night for Adame Blackmon. She found her grandaugher, Constance Blackmon, in a frightful fit.
“She was all on the floor kicking with her legs up in the air and she was saying somebody gave her some drugs,” Adame said.
Adame said her granddaughter continued writing as she made her way into the front yard. That’s when Adame called the police.
“She continued to keep saying she had taken some bad drugs,” Detective Glenn Hartenstein said. “We immediately called paramedics, EMT to come over to get her some medical attention.”
And that’s when the potential spice came in.
“She withdrew a small plastic baggie containing a green, leafy substance out of her mouth, a police officer immediately collected it as evidence,” Hartenstein said.
“I don’t know who the dude was, but some dude she was with, he gave it to her,” Adame said. “We didn’t know nothing about it until she gave it to the police.”
Police said Blackmon was taken to South Baldwin Medical Center for treatment. But when she continued to act erratically, police were called yet again.
“Once she was discharged, she was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance,” Hartenstein explained.
She is currently being held on a $10,000 bond, but her family said instead of jail, she needs mental help.
“She got a problem. She really got a problem. She’s trying to get some help. She got a mental problem.”
Her family only wants what’s best for her.
“I love you, Constance, and I miss you. And I hope you will get out soon,” Adame said.
Police said they won’t know for certain if the drugs were spice until they get confirmation back from the Department of Forensic Sciences.
Blackmon had previously served time after she was convicted in 2010 for abusing her then 4-year-old. She was released on June 18, 2011 for good behavior. Adame said three kids are staying with Constance’s sister.
