Woman Wearing ‘I Heart Crystal Meth’ Shirt Arrested For Meth
LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A Kentucky woman’s ironic photo is going viral.
Deborah Delane Asher, 37, was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, first degree and possession of methamphetamine.
The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department posted her mugshot on its Facebook page. In the photo, Asher is wearing a “I Heart Crystal Meth” shirt.
“The shirt was meant to be ironic,” Asher said. “I don’t really do crystal meth, nor do I love it. I just happened to have some in my possession. I didn’t plan to do it nor has I ever done it.”
Delane said the she carries varying amounts of crystal meth and wears the T-shirt as a joke to mess with her family and friends.
“They get all freaked out about it. They think I’m on meth. But it’s just a big practical joke. I don’t meth around, ever, period, exclamation mark.”
57-year-old Richard Rice, of East Bernstadt, was also arrested and faces the same charges.
