Christopher M. Kidd
Sheriff’s Investigators this afternoon arrested 18 year old CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL KIDD of rural Mountain Home following an investigation into a complaint that KIDD had provided a 16 year old juvenile with a controlled substance that resulted in an overdose.
On January 19, 2017, the Sheriff’s Office was informed that the juvenile had been given several Xanax pills by CHRISTOPHER KIDD while riding on a Mountain Home School Bus. Investigators reviewed video surveillance footage from inside the school bus that recorded the incident, and KIDD later admitted during an interview that he had given the drugs to the juvenile. Medical records were also obtained by Investigators by way of subpoena.
After consuming the Xanax, the juvenile suffered an overdose and was taken by ambulance to Baxter Regional Medical Center in Mountain Home.
A bench warrant was obtained for the arrest of CHRISTOPHER KIDD, which was served today. KIDD has been booked into the Baxter County Detention Center on charges of:
Introduction of Controlled Substance into the body of another person – Felony
Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor – Misdemeanor
KIDD is being held in custody in lieu of $10,000 bond and will appear in Baxter County Circuit Court to answer on March 23rd.
