Mother Overdosed in Front of Child While Parked at Coastal Grand Mall

A mother has been arrested and charged with unlawful neglect of a child. 28-year-old Brittany Combs reportedly overdosed on an “unidentified and un-prescribed pain pill” she took just prior to picking her child up from school Monday afternoon. She then drove to the Coastal Grand Mall parking lot where she lost consciousness while her child was in the back seat. She was arrested and currently remains in the Myrtle Beach Jail. It’s not yet known when she will be sentenced or if she’ll be released on bond.
