Grapevine, Texas (The Weekly Vice) - Julio Cesar Garcia, 20, and Brenda Duran, 19, were jailed Monday after Garcia allegedly filled a bong with marijuana smoke and placed it to his toddler's mouth.
According to Grapevine police, officers were called to the couple's apartment around 10:30 p.m. on a report of a possible "narcotics issue".
When deputies arrived, they saw a "water" bong in plain view near a window. A witness at the residence reported that Garcia was smoking marijuana with his 13-month-son in his lap when he reportedly filled the bong with smoke and placed it near the toddler's mouth.
The witness also reported that Garcia allowed his son to play with a bowl of marijuana. Duran also reportedly witnessed the incidents and failed to take action.
Investigators say Garcia admitted to smoking marijuana, but refused to speak about forcing his son to smoke it.
Garcia was booked into jail and charged with endangering a child and possession of marijuana. His bond was set at $3,000.
Duran was booked into jail and charged with endangering a child. Her bond was set at $2,000.
The toddler was placed in the custody of his paternal grandmother.
