Man Arrested After Posting a Video of His 3-Year-Old Nephew Smoking Weed on Facebook (Video)



A man has been arrested after he decided to record himself giving his 3-year-old nephew weed to smoke.

LawNewz reports:

Arkansas cops said a 17-year-old encouraged his little nephew to smoke a marijuana joint. They know this because the suspect allegedly uploaded video to Facebook.

“The child holds this like someone would be smoking, so it makes you think this is not the first time this child has been exposed to this,” Sgt. Brian Dedrick told Krem2 in a Friday report.

Cops came across the video while investigating a burglary. They said the child’s mother is in the footage, protesting what happened. Now the uncle has been arrested, and is being charged as an adult for endangering the welfare of a minor.

He is scheduled for a Nov. 11 court appearance. Police said the 3-year-old is now in the custody his grandmother after a health exam and a brief stay with the Department of Human Services.
