Girls 'Drug Parents' Drinks To Beat Web Ban'
Two California teenagers have been accused of drugging the milkshakes of one of the girl's parents so they could log onto the internet late at night.
The parents from Rocklin, northeast of Sacramento, called police and the 15-year-old girl and her 16-year-old friend were taken into juvenile custody.
The Sacramento Bee reported the girls had offered to pick up milkshakes at a fast-food restaurant last Friday night.
They allegedly used a prescription sleeping medication to spike the drinks.
The mother and father thought the shakes tasted odd, but by then the drugs had taken effect and they fell asleep.
"They woke up about one in the morning, they had hangover like symptoms and they felt really groggy, had a headache, went back to sleep," said Lieutenant Lon Milka from the Rocklin Police Department.
"They felt the same way the next morning so they felt something was strange."
The parents picked up a drug test kit the next day from their local police station.
Usually the kits are used by parents to test their children for illegal drug use.
Investigators revealed the girls said they wanted to surf the web, beyond the usual 10pm curfew time imposed by the parents.
The 15-year-old told police that the internet policy was "too strict," Lt Milka said.
It is unclear what exactly the pair wanted to look at on the internet.
The district attorney will have to decide if the crime justifies adult punishment.
