Nichole Hiltz Arrested For Child Neglect


Yesterday morning police were called to the home of Nichole Hiltz, who stars on In Plain Sight, because they had received reports of a disturbance. When police arrived, what they found was apparently enough to arrest Nichole on suspicion of child neglect and place the child in protective custody. Wow. Despite Nichole's lawyer saying it was all a misunderstanding, when the police take your child from you and place it with a stranger rather than keep it with the parent, then something was really wrong. Nichole was quickly released on bail, and because our system is what it is, since she was only charged with a misdemeanor, then she will probably end up with some kind of warning or parenting classes.

I find this strange. The cops are not taking a kid away from you just for the hell of it. If they feel it was neglect how can it be a misunderstanding?

Yeah I don't get this PR spin. And has the child been returned to her? I'm sure the neighbors heard loud shouting and kid crying. Which doesn't necessarily mean abuse or neglect - parents shout and kids cry BUT the police obviously saw something that warranted arrest. Poor kid.

is there a second parent to take responsibility for the child?

I don't know. Out here, we've had DHS take kids away when a parent is just smoking pot. And the parent had a medical marijuana card.

If it's anything even remotely drug related (like the cops thought they saw paraphernalia) they'd snatch your kid here.

i would imagine that if there was no one to watch the child when she was arrested they would HAVE to (at least) temporarily place the child elsewhere.

This isn't salacious. It's just really sad. Ugh. Neglected children/animals break my heart like nothing else.

I don't know if she is a good parent, but she is the reason i don't watch that show. She grates on my nerves

The police must have seen something in the home which caused them to take the child into custody--drug paraphernalia, perhaps a hoarding situation, or nothing in the home (no furniture, no food, something like that).

How sad. What a bummer.

I liked her since I saw her as Angies girlfriend on Bones.

Then she jacked her face up with Botox or fillers while on Plain Sight, kept hoping that would go away/wear off.

Must have been pretty bad, fighting, drugs, disgusting environment or all of the above.

Hope it works out for the baby.

Agree Jeri. She did something funky to her face. It almost looks like it was melting.

Could just be that they arrested the mom for something (drug use seems likely... or even just resisting arrest or extreme drunkeness) and therefore took the child into protective custody because there was no one home to watch him/her. I wouldn't be surprised if the story had gotten a bit twisted.
