Try 3 months for $3

MASON CITY - A Mason City woman was arrested for becoming intoxicated and allowing a 2-month-old to “roll off the bed” according to court documents.

Lakesa Marie Mitchell, 36, was charged with felony child endangerment causing bodily injury.

At about 4:06 a.m. Saturday, Mason City Police and paramedics responded to a medical call involving a 2-month-old infant at a residence on the 1700 block of South Delaware Avenue.  

Mitchell was left as a caretaker for a  2-month-old relative.

During that time she became intoxicated to the point that she was unable to safely care for the child, court documents said.  

Police said child rolled off the bed and onto the floor and was found on the floor by the child’s mother.

The child was transported to the hospital by ambulance.

A preliminary breath test indicated Mitchell had a BAC of .214, according to police.

Mitchell was booked in Cerro Gordo County Jail and was released on her own recognizance Saturday. 

A no contact order was issued the same day. 

At about 1:46 p.m. Wednesday, Mitchell allegedly took two packages of meat from Fareway in Mason City.

Mitchell was arrested and charged with misdemeanor third degree theft.

She has been convicted on theft charges twice before in Cerro Gordo County.

Mitchell was released on her own recognizance Thursday following her initial court appearance, two days before the alleged child endangerment incident.  

Mitchell is scheduled to appear Jan. 18 in Cerro Gordo County District Court for the theft and child endangerment charges.
