2 arrested in Fort Hall after shocking toddler pot video: ‘He’s all tripped out now’
Published at | Updated at
FORT HALL — Shocking video posted on Facebook shows four adults smoking marijuana in front of a toddler. One woman blows smoke into the child’s face and, at one point, appears to stick the joint in his mouth.
The video, first exposed by KPVI, was shot inside a home on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation and posted on a Facebook page over the weekend.
Two women are laughing and teasing the child, who appears to be 3 or 4 years old, as they pass the marijuana joint to other adults in the room.
One of the women repeatedly blows smoke in the toddler’s face and another says, with a laugh, “No more getting high? He’s all blazing it.”
Fort Hall police say two women have been arrested for child endangerment, but authorities aren’t releasing their names or mugshots.
Authorities tell KPVI they are close to obtaining arrest warrants on the other two adults who were in the room while the video was being shot.
After the video was posted on Facebook on Saturday, dozens of angry comments were posted and the video had been removed by Monday evening.
