An Indiana mother was arrested after she was caught allegedly selling drugs in front of her daughter.

Amanda Lynn Summers, 25, reportedly sold two grams of heroin for $330 to an undercover officer in Muncie, Indiana, on July 13, Fox 59 reported. During the sale, which was outside of a CVS store, Summers’ 4-year-old daughter sat in the back seat.

After Summers left the parking lot, officers arrested her at a traffic stop.

During the arrest, no weapons were used in the presence of Summers’ daughter. However, the girl put up quite the fight as police arrested her mother. She reportedly began kicking and screaming in the backseat.

“Leave my mom alone!” the girl yelled, according to Fox 59.

When a deputy tried to open the door and calm the girl down, she screamed and began to kick. She then kicked Corp. Lenny Popp and began screaming “as loud as she could," according to probable cause affidavit.

Child Protective Services was called, which resulted in the girl’s grandmother picking her up.

Summers reportedly gave a full confession at the Sheriff’s Office, noting that she had sold drugs to six people the day of her arrest and that her daughter had accompanied her on all the sales. Summers added that her daughter had also been present when she purchased the products from a drug dealer.

Summers confessed that she had begun selling drugs because she was “tired of being broke.” While she said she spent about $1,000 per day buying drugs, she wasn’t sure how much profit she made.

Summers is currently being held at Delaware County jail on $25,000 bond. She was charged with dealing cocaine, dealing meth with possibility of intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, and neglect of a dependent.
