AVONDALE, OH (FOX19) - Police have arrested an Avondale mother after her 15-year-old son was found passed out drunk.

Nichole Lattimore, 32, is charged with two counts of endangering children and one count of drug possession.

According to court documents, police found the 15-year-old boy unconscious from drinking rum, but it's unclear how he got the alcohol. The boy had to be taken to the hospital.

Officers say the home was in unsanitary living conditions, with animal feces on the floor and no food in the fridge.

Lattimore's 12-year-old son told police that he and his brother live on Van Burn Street while their mother lives at another home on Ridgeway.

When officers arrested Lattimore, they found marijuana in her pocket.

She is scheduled for arraignment on Thursday afternoon.
