An Arkansas teen handed a blunt to his three-year-old nephew multiple times in a video he then uploaded to Facebook.
17-year-old Lamel Lamont Yancy was arrested after the video went viral and came to the attention of law enforcement.
A North Little Rock Police Department officer had run across the video on Mr. Yancyâ€™s Facebook page while reviewing the social media accounts of those suspected in burglaries.
The diaper-clad infant just turned three in July.
Investigators with the Arkansas Department of Human Services removed the boy from the home that he shares with his mother, Mr. Yancy, and other relatives. The little boy was transported to a hospital for hair follicle analysis to see if he’d smoked marijuana recently.
Yancy was arrested and charged as an adult with endangering the welfare of a minor, a felony, and is being held in lieu of $2500 bond.
