A teenage girl in Ricklin, California is said to have been so annoyed with her parents’ strict Internet curfew, that she slipped sleeping pills in their milkshakes to continue using the web.
Police say that back on Dec. 28, the girl, whose name has not been released because of her age, put prescription sleeping medicine in her parents’ milkshakes, reports Fox 40. The girl got the pills from a friend, whose name was also not released.
Her parents drank the milkshakes and were asleep within an hour. They felt groggy and didn’t get up until the next morning, Lt. Lon Milka told the media, notes KABC.
“"[The parents] woke up about 1 a.m. They had hangover-like symptoms, they felt really groggy, had a headache, went back to sleep. They felt the same way the next morning,” Milka explained.
The day after drinking the milkshakes, they bought a drug testing kit and used it on themselves to discover that they had been drugged by their daughter and her friend. Her father drank chocolate and her mother had vanilla.
Police investigators discovered that the girl had been told by her parents to get off the Internet at 10 p.m. every night. She and her friend decided that if they drugged her parents, they could stay on all night.
While they have been charged with putting a drug into food and for conspiracy, they will not face any jail time. The case is being handled in juvenile court. If they were adults, they would be facing felony charges.
