Middletown, Connecticut (The Weekly Vice) - Thomas Way, 22, and Kristian Augeri, 23, have been jailed after police discovered a video recording that showed the couple's 3-year-old child inhaling from a marijuana pipe.
According to Middletown police, officers executed a search warrant of the couple's home after a witness reported the couple had taken photos of their child smoking from a pot pipe and that the child knew how to crush pills and roll up a dollar bill.
Investigators say that, while searching the couple's home, they discovered a video camera with a recording that confirmed their suspicions.
The video reportedly showed the couple's child attempting to light a glass smoking pipe. Way could be seen in the video laying next to the boy. At one point, Way reportedly told the child he was getting spit all over the pipe.
He then took the pipe away, wiped it off and handed it back to the child, say police.
While investigators do not believe the boy succeeded in lighting the pipe, the video did seem to show the child inhaling and then coughing afterward.
"He wasn't smoking anything. The police were misinformed," said the child's aunt, who is now reportedly watching the child in his parent's absence.
Way and Augeri now face multiple charges including risk of injury to a minor and use of drug paraphernalia. They are scheduled to appear in court April 15th.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
So lets see if we have this straight... A couple is shoving a marijuana pipe in the mouth of a toddler - yet the only thing the kid's aunt can think to complain about is that the child didn't succeed in lighting the pipe and smoking it.
And if that don't grab you.... this dumblefuck aunt has now been given temporary custody of the child? She has my vote of confidence.... how about you?
