MTV “True Life” episode leads to arrests in KY
On December 9, 2013 MTV aired an episode of “True Life” titled “I’m Addicted To Pills ” featuring a young lady that admittedly had a very serious problem with pills and it showed. I personally remember catching this, which in itself is crazy because I don’t watch much TV but this episode caught my attention for some reason. During the episode I witnessed the young lady repeatedly shun her child leaving him screaming for her only to pursue her next fix, I also witnessed the police approach a party she was attending and she swallowed numerous pills to avoid trouble with the law (which is a felony), and I also witnessed her purchasing and snorting pills with her child in her presence. With all of that said, obviously i’m not the only one who witnessed the numerous crimes committed because the Kentucky State Police have brought charges against her and her “drug dealer” in connection with that episode.
Here is the story as told by WAVE 3 News…
