Abilene father arrested after infant tests positive for meth

ABILENE, Texas -  A young Abilene father was arrested Saturday after his infant child tested positive for methamphetamine.

Zachary Fowler, 19, has been charged with endangering a child.

Witness statements indicate the child “was exposed to meth, pipes, smoke, and paraphernalia by Fowler during this time.” 

According to court documents, Fowler engaged in conduct that placed the child -- described as an infant -- in imminent danger.  The documents don't specify the age of the child.

Fowler and a child in his care tested positive for methamphetamine on or around May 23. Hair follicles were tested as part of a CPS investigation.

Fowler was released on a $10,000 bond.
