Teens drug parents to use Internet
ROCKLIN, California (AP) -- Police say two California teenagers used a prescription sleeping medication to spike the milkshakes of too-strict parents so they could log onto the Internet.
The parents called police and the 15-year-old Rocklin girl and a 16-year-old friend were taken to Juvenile Hall. Rocklin is 20 miles northeast of Sacramento.
The Sacramento Bee reports that the girls offered to pick up milkshakes at a fast-food restaurant for the parents of one of the girls on Friday night.
The drug was mixed into the shakes and the couple fell asleep. The suspicious parents picked up a drug test kit the following day.
The girls told investigators they wanted to use the Internet, which was shut down daily at 10:00 pm.
It's unclear what the girls did on the Internet.
