A woman was arrested at the Pine Mountain Lake Golf Course property early Monday morning after walking around naked in the rain with a small child.
Officials said the woman was under the influence of methamphetamine at around 4:30 a.m. when deputies responded to an anonymous tip at the swimming pool area of Pine Mountain Lake in Groveland, a Tuolumne County news release said.
The woman’s 7-year-old daughter, who was wearing a T-shirt and shorts at the time of the incident, had been taken inside a truck with Pine Mountain Lake Security in order to warm her up.
According to the Tuolumne County news release, the young girl said she and her mother had been “wandering in the rain for about two hours and she was told someone was coming to kill them.”
Following the woman’s arrest, deputies were unable to find anyone to take custody of the girl.
The daughter was taken to Sonora Regional Medical Center for a cut on her foot and was taken into custody by Child Welfare Services.
Crystal Hendrix, 34, of an unknown address, was booked on suspicion of child endangerment and misdemeanor charges use of a controlled substance following her arrest at Pine Mountain Lake.
Her bail is set at $25,000.
