Dylan Williams

An Ardmore man charged with aggravated child abuse in February is now facing a felony charge of chemical endangerment of a child, records show.

Dylan Wade Williams, 25, of 28236 Lambert Road, was arrested June 7 on a warrant obtained by Limestone County Sheriff's Investigator Caleb Durden.

According to the complaint Durden filed in Limestone County District Court, Williams "knowingly, recklessly or intentionally caused or permitted a child to be exposed to, to ingest or inhale, or to have contact with ... methamphetamine."

At the time of the child abuse charge, there were three children staying in Williams' home.

"The chemical endangerment charge is a secondary charge resulting from the charge of aggravated child abuse," Durden said Monday.

As a result of the child abuse charge, the Department of Human Resources was notified and all three children were removed from the home and placed with family, Durden said. DHR also required the three children be drug tested. Test results showed one of the three children tested positive for meth, he said.

The victim in the child abuse case and the victim in the chemical endangerment case are two different children.
