Woman Arrested After Smoking Weed with 3 Toddlers on a Viral Video
Two women were arrested on child abuse charges Tuesday, after a video of them teaching kids how to smoke marijuana went viral on facebook. I actually saw this video on my news feed and i could not believe my eyes.
According to a news release from Winston-Salem police, Michaela Pearson and Candice Little 21 & 18, are each charged with felony child abuse and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
They are not the parents of the kids. The mom of the kids broke her silence and said she "Trusted" the 2 women to watch her kids. She claims to have no knowledge that this would ever happen. She also said she has been getting death threats.
Officers received numerous reports of the Facebook video showing multiple young children being given what appeared to be an illegal substance by two women.
The children were 2 years old, 3 years old and 18 months old. Officials believe Pearson and Little caused and encouraged the children to smoke marijuana.
Following an investigation, Pearson and Little were arrested.
The children were taken to a local hospital where they are being treated.
Pearson and Little are being held on $150,000 secured bonds.
