Sweetin Limited To Supervised Visits With Eight-month-old Daughter

Actress JODIE SWEETIN has been limited to supervised visits with her eight-month-old daughter after she was accused of abusing drugs and alcohol at an emergency custody hearing called by her estranged husband.
Sweetin, 26, filed for legal separation from Cody Herpin, 31, on 19 November (08) in Orange County, California - seven months after she gave birth to the couple's first child.
The pair was scheduled to return to court on 9 February (09) for a custody hearing after Sweetin reportedly filed for joint custody of little Zoie.
Herpin responded seeking sole custody on 4 December (08), but called for the emergency hearing to get access the child - accusing the former Full House actress of driving intoxicated with their baby in the car.
A doctor took to the stand claiming the actress, an admitted crystal meth addict and alcoholic, had recently fallen off the wagon.
Sweetin, who lives with her parents, is now under emergency investigation by an Orange County, California family court for substance abuse, and will not be allowed to be with the child unless one of her parents is present.
Herpin's lawyer tells People.com, "It's primarily alcohol (abuse) but there's also concern regarding methamphetamines," adding his client only had "sporadic" contact with their daughter since the split.
A judge ordered both parties, who married in July 2007, to submit to drug tests before the next hearing.
A lawyer and spokesperson for Sweetin were not available for comment as WENN went to press.
