How far would you go to use the internet? Two teenage girls in Rocklin, California have been arrested for spiking their parents' milkshakes with ground-up sleeping pills to get around a 10PM internet curfew. While we're aware of the somewhat addictive traits of web usage, this is just insane.
As The Sacramento Bee reports, the 16 year-old daughter and her 15 year-old friend gave the parents a strong dosage, as they were down for the count after drinking just a quarter of the milkshakes. After waking up in the middle of the night with hangover symptons, which didn't subside until later the following morning, the parents picked up two drug testing kits and contacted the police. Upon confirmation that they had been drugged, the two girls were taken down to the station.
Lieutennant Lon Milka made a comment as to the teens’ motivation for The Bee: "the girls wanted to use the Internet, and they’d go to whatever means they had to."
