Police: Pregnant woman facing drug, child endangerment charges after passing out in McDonald's



ELLWOOD CITY, Pa. - A pregnant woman is facing charges after police said she passed out in an Ellwood City McDonald's.

Channel 11's Amy Marcinkiewicz was there as Darcy Kelosky, 33, turned herself in to police on Monday.

Investigators said Kelosky passed out at the restaurant on April 24 while she was babysitting a 2- and 3-year-old.

Police told Marcinkiewicz that they found 54 stamped bags of heroin on Kelosky and she told the officers she didn’t know her own name. Kelosky later told the officers she snorted 10 bags of heroin in five hours and that’s why she doesn’t remember anything.

Kelosky found out she was five-and-a-half months pregnant while undergoing drug tests at the hospital, police said.

“It’s very sad she didn’t know she was pregnant,” Ellwood City Police Lt. Dave Kingston said.

Kelosky said in court Monday that she is an addict and has mental problems.

“She’s a good mom. People just make mistakes,” Kelosky’s suster, Tracey Kelosky said. “This is her mistake and she deserves a chance.”

Keosky is facing drug and child endangerment charges.
