Drug reaction results in child endangerment, meth charges for Stoney Creek woman

Selena Michelle Fenner

ELIZABETHTON — An investigation into an apparent drug reaction led to several drug charges being placed on a Stoney Creek woman.

Selena Michelle Fenner, 35, 188 Old Stoney Creek Road, Lot 1, was arrested Thursday on charges of initiation of a process intended to result in the manufacture of methamphetamine, felony aggravated child endangerment for a child of 16 years old, and 10 counts of promotion of methamphetamine manufacture. 

The charges stem from an investigation that began Thursday when Carter County deputies responded to an apparent fight between two women at 189 Old Stoney Creek Road. Sgt. Harmon Duncan said the apparent fight was actually Fenner struggling to restrain another woman who was having a violent reaction to an unknown drug. The woman was transported to the emergency room at Sycamore Shoals Hospital.

Duncan said Fenner told him she and the other woman had been using bath salts, but had quit over a month ago. She also said they were both using Suboxone and were "coming down."

Duncan said there was also evidence of methamphetamine activity at Fenner's mobile home. He found plastic bottles in the kitchen trash can that were determined to be "gassers." There were also empty blister packs of cold medicine containing psuedoephedrine. He said a 16-year-old boy was also at the residence.

Fenner appeared in Carter County General Sessions Court on Monday, where she was appointed a public defender on those charges and the case was continued to Oct. 8.

She was also charged with two counts of violation of probation. On the first count, Judge John Walton ordered Fenner to serve 30 days in jail, with credit for time served. One the second violation, Walton ordered Fenner to serve 109 days, consecutive to the first violation.
