The 13-year-old asked a neighbor to call police about 3:30 p.m. after the fighting began in his mother’s Lake Forest Drive apartment.

According to a sheriff’s office incident report, Ronnie Patricia Walters, 44, was arguing with her live-in boyfriend, Steven Robert Sizemore Jr., 31, because he didn’t have a job.

The argument escalated when Walters took a baseball bat and hit Sizemore several times, police said, and Sizemore suffered scratches to his torso and little finger. Deputies did not see any injuries to Walters other than sores from possible drug use.

While trying to find the bat in the apartment, deputies discovered a glass container of methamphetamine and a working lab, authorities said.

Walters and Sizemore were charged with trafficking methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine, presence of a child during the manufacture of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance. Walters was also charged with simple battery.

Self-destructive people are

Self-destructive people are damaging and destroying a lot of people around them. Also, no telling what kind of damage is happening to people that unsuspectingly rent or buy homes that used to be used for meth manufacturing. Drug use is NOT a victimless crime.

The poor 13 year old has a chance and if he has abilities he may end up with a positive, unique perspective as he lives his life. Trust me.

Very sad...

Wow, simply wow. I knew Ronnie as a friend when we were teenagers. Simply sad to see what has happened to her. I feel more sorry for her poor son who had to live in these conditions. Prayers that she gets the help she needs. Meth is a nasty, nasty drug. Why do people want to put this poison in their bodies??
