West was arrested in February 2011 in Tarrant County on a charge of abandoning or endangering a child after she reportedly left the boy, then 6 years old, in the car while she was in a bar for at least an hour, according to court records. The child reportedly came into the bar dressed only in a T-shirt.
After West underwent counseling, the boy was returned to her care and the CPS case was closed in 2012.

However, twice in March, the boy was found wandering along State Highway 199, once dressed only in a T-shirt covered in feces and another time about two miles from home and barefoot on a 56-degree day, according to court records.
Investigators reportedly found feces smeared on the walls and floors of various areas of the home in March, as well.
Both children were removed from West and placed with an aunt for a period of time.
However, after various steps were taken, including the family using locks and alarms at the home to keep the boy from running away, the youngest child moved back in with West and the older boy stayed with her on the weekends, according to CPS.
Both children were placed with their aunt Saturday, according to CPS, which had filed paperwork with the court this week to remove the children.
