Police Discover Intoxicated Child, Three Arrested


MORGAN COUNTY, Mo.–Three people in Morgan County face charges after a “shots fired” call led to the discovery of an intoxicated 9-year-old.

According to a press release, Deputies were called on September 30th to a home on Red Hollow Road in Gravois Mills.

When deputies arrived at the residence, they found a vehicle with three unattended children inside ranging in age from less than a year old to pre-teenager. The smell of alcohol and marijuana were emanating from inside the car.

The children originally appeared to be unharmed. But when deputies asked the children to exit the vehicle, one of the children, a 9-year-old, was visibly intoxicated. The child was transported to a nearby hospital and was determined to have a BAC of .093.

Police searched both residence and vehicle to discover multiple drugs including methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription pills, as well as a sawed-off shotgun, and three pistols. 

Brian Plemmons is facing drug charges plus five counts of endangering the welfare of a child.  Allison Williams and a third person, Robert Yount, both face drug, and firearms charges.
