Grandma Arrested After 2-Year-Old Granddaughter Drinks Her 'Special' Iced Tea


A 51-year-old woman has been arrested and charged with child endangerment after her 2-year-old granddaughter drank tea laced with methamphetamine, authorities say.

The grandmother, Cynthia Watson, of Aloha, Oregon, was visiting family in Garner Valley in Southern California when the toddler’s mother called police around 10 a.m. Monday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The mother said she took her daughter to a hospital after the 2-year-old would not go to sleep the night before, and was talking rapidly and could not sit still.

“Thinking there might be some medical issue with her daughter, the reporting party took her to a hospital to be examined,” a Riverside County sheriff’s statement said, according to Reuters. “Over the course of the evening, the examination revealed the child tested positive for methamphetamine in her system.”

The investigation into Watson found that she had made a cup of tea infused with the drug in order to get high, Sgt. Craig McDonald said.

“At some point the cup of methamphetamine-laced tea was left unattended on a counter, when the two-year-old victim took the cup and drank some of the contents,” he told CBS Los Angeles.

In addition to the felony child endangerment charge, Watson was also arrested for possession of methamphetamine. She is being held on $35,000 bail and was due in court on Wednesday.

The child is expected to make a full recovery.
