CUMMING, Ga. (AP) - A Forsyth County teen now faces felony drug
charges after allegedly selling liquid methadone at school.

Investigators said three students became ill after using the drug, which is commonly used as a treatment for heroin addiction.

According to authorities one of the students had to be shocked with a
defibrillator on campus after going into cardiac arrest.

The 16-year-old South Forsyth County High junior and her
parents, 45-year-old Deborah Pendleton and 65-year-old Oscar Carter
III were arrested.

The parents also face felony drug charges in the Oct. 3 incident.

Authorities said Carter owns a methadone clinic in Louisiana but
hadn't registered or properly stored the drug when he came to
Georgia after a recent hurricane.

Authorities said the students who took the drug will also face
felony drug possession charges.
