A sad drug PSA played out live at Austin's Bar and Grill in Olathe Monday night. Kristin Macias, a 28-year-old mother, attempted to walk into the bar while topless, while her 8-month-old baby sat in her roasting car in the parking with the temperature hovering around 90 degrees.
KCTV5 reports that Macias was charged with aggravated child endangerment for putting the child in a potentially deadly situation. Macias was due in court this week on an earlier heroin-possession charge.
Macias's father told the television station that she is being held on
$5,000 bond. But, he told the channel, the family isn't going to bail
her out. They're hoping maybe this will encourage her to get help. The baby girl was placed with Macia's parents, who said she is
in good health.
