Mom accused of giving pot, beer to kids

SPRINGTOWN, TX (KDFW) -- Parker County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Springtown-area mother, accused of giving beer and marijuana at least eight kids, between the ages 12 and 14 years old.

Investigators say 32-year-old Mandy Nichole Wells admitted giving it to the kids at a party at her house on Nov. 6.

One of them posted a picture to Instagram, and parents started asking questions and contacted police.

Police say Wells offered them marijuana and beer without prompting and said it was OK because they were sleepingover.

Wells remains in jail on a $20,000 bond.

Penny McKinzie says Wells, her daughter-in-law, told her from the Parker County Jail that she's sorry for what she did.

"She just said, ‘I'm not very proud of myself right now, Penny,’ and I said, ‘I know you’re not,’ and I said, ‘I don't even know what you were thinking,’ because, that's just not her, it's not her,” said McKenzie.

Detectives with Parker County Sheriff's Special Crimes Unit say Wells first gave the kids beer.

According to the probable cause warrant, "Each child had 2 beers.”
