39-year-old Kyleen Waltman who lost both of her arms after she was mauled by a pack of pit bulls in March was arrested Tuesday, Oct. 25 for allegedly trafficking meth, said reports.

The South Carolina mom's arrest came during a traffic stop in Abbeville County. The police say they found 8.3 grams of methamphetamine in her purse, authorities said.

After being told she was under arrest, Waltman allegedly made a confession of having an additional 7.2 grams of drugs in bags in her pockets, the report said.

A passenger in the vehicle named Jeffrey Wayne Bond was also arrested after allegedly admitting to having meth in his pocket, cops said. The two were booked into the Abbeville County Detention Center.

Waltman was viciously attacked by three dogs in the city of Columbia after which she had both of her arms amputated to the shoulder and lost her vocal cords.

Due to the severity of her wounds, Waltman wasn't able to get prosthetic limbs. She was devastated when she came to know about this, said her sister Amy Wynne.

Waltman was released from the hospital in April after undergoing more than a dozen surgeries, said reports.

After the attack, a GoFundMe campaign was launched by Wynne to help cover her sister’s medical expenses. As of Wednesday, Oct. 26, over 6,200 people had donated over $309,000 to the fundraiser.

The page’s latest update, posted by Wynne on Oct. 4, says Waltman and her mother were going back and forth with insurance to help cover an out-of-state surgery.

Waltman’s mother texted Wynne “She is doing well but there is one problem we finally got her on Medicaid and she had surgery on the 22nd of September now her insurance is not going to help pay for her surgery or her arms,” according to the media.

“I am wore [sic] out. She cries [sic] a lot and we don’t know what to do anymore,” she said, according to the media.

Waltman, who worked as a waitress at Lou and Perry’s in Honea Path, has three children, a 21-year-old son and 18- and 17-year-old daughters, her sister Wynne said.

She also has a newborn granddaughter, said reports.
