Officers were called to Shorty's Food Mart at 1711 W. Broadway around 12:50 p.m. October 17 after two adults were found passed out in an SUV with an infant in the back seat. The window to the SUV was down but the sun was hitting the child's face, police said.

It took five minutes for police to awaken the driver, the arrest report says. When they did and asked her to step out of the vehicle, police said Grant handed them a baggie of drugs that she said was Spice.
