GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU)-- An overdose reversal drug was used on an 11-month-old after deputies say the girl swallowed an unknown pill.

It happened in June at a house on Emily Lane in East Bay Township.

According to the Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office, initial information indicated the 11-month-old girl may have swallowed an unknown pill.

Deputies say EMS arrived on scene and administered Narcan to the little girl. The child was then taken to Munson Medical Center where she was treated before being airlifted to DeVos Children's Hospital. The little girl has since been released from the hospital and is okay.

Investigation revealed that the child at some point ingested cocaine and an opiate. After an investigation by Grand Traverse County Sheriff's detectives and Child Protective Services, a report was sent to the Grand Traverse County Prosecutor's Office. Charges of third degree child abuse were then authorized against the parents, Devin and Brianna Devereaux. Devin also faces a habitual offender charge.

With assistance from the Michigan State Police, Devin and Brianna were both arrested at a house in Gladwin Saturday.

Devin and Brianna are currently behind bars in the Gladwin County Jail.

Child Protective Services took the 11-month-old to a relative's home in Ogemaw County.
