Police: Teens drugged parents so they could use Internet
ROCKLIN, Calif. — Two California teenagers accused of giving one of the girl's parents milkshakes spiked with prescription sleeping pills were arrested.
The parents were drugged because the girl wanted to use the Internet beyond her curfew of 10 p.m. daily, police said.
The medicated milkshakes worked, but the parents became suspicious when they woke up groggy the next morning, Rocklin police Lt. Lon Milka told The Sacramento Bee. The parents obtained a drug kit from police to test for tampering. The tests came back positive, and the couple went back to police with the results.
The parents' 15-year-old daughter and her 16-year-old friend were taken to a juvenile detention center on Saturday and booked on suspicion of conspiracy and willfully mingling a pharmaceutical with food, Milka said. Prosecutors haven't decided whether the girls will be charged.
Therapist Leslie Whitten Baughman told The Bee that although it is normal for teens to act out while asserting their individuality, drugging their parents “would not be a healthy level of rebellion.”
