Baby Swallows Cocaine, Rushed to Connecticut Hospital
Thursday, December 10, 2009
WATERBURY, Conn.** — Waterbury police say they arrested a mother of five children after her 11-month-old son swallowed cocaine and had to be hospitalized.**
Twenty-eight-year-old Kenya Brown was charged Tuesday with risk of injury to children, drug possession and illegal possession of a gun. She was held in lieu of $50,000 bail and is to appear in Waterbury Superior Court on Dec. 23.
A hospital spokesman says the boy was discharged Wednesday.
Police say Brown told investigators that her roommate was baby sitting her children Monday night when the incident happened. The roommate, 24-year-old Leshonda Davis, was also arrested.
Authorities say they found a loaded handgun in the home that was within easy reach of Brown's children.
It's not clear if Brown and Davis have attorneys.
These people should be in jail for having cocaine around kids.
However the loaded gun has nothing to do with the story. I’ve had loaded guns around me all my life even when I was in the womb.—Stan.
