… Bringing a Crack Pipe to Show and Tell [wtfNews]

Click for News Story

(KCTV) – The task for the fresh-faced kindergartner students was to bring important family items for show and tell. But one kindergartner floored his teacher and local law enforcement officers when police say he pulled his mother’s crack pipe and an ounce of drugs from his backpack.

The child’s mother was charged with possession of a controlled substance and one count of first-degree child endangerment. Bond was set at $7,500 for 32-year-old Michelle Marie Cheatham.

A family friend at Cheatham’s home told KCTV5 that the boy is now being cared for by loved ones.

Sweet Springs Elementary School officials contacted police on Sept. 6 about 8:30 a.m. Superintendent Donna Wright told police that students had been asked to bring “pictures of their family for show and tell,” according to court documents.

The teacher told police that the boy produced for his “show-and-tell” family items the pipe and “several baggies of crack rocks,” according to court records. The rocks tested positive for methamphetamine. Altogether, the drugs totaled about an ounce and were worth about $3,700, officials said Monday.

  1. The child should have gotten an ‘A’ since he did bring ‘important family items’ just like he was told. Poor thing… I am so blessed & fortunate that my parents were NOT drug addicts!
