South Carolina day care worker asks 8-year-old for urine sample so her adult son can pass a drug test

Posted: Updated:

ROCK HILL, SC (AP) — Police in South Carolina say they are investigating a day care employee accused of asking an 8-year-old boy to give a urine sample so her adult son could use it to pass a drug test.

The Rock Hill Police report said the boy told his mother that he was awakened from a nap last week and told to urinate in a cup.

Investigators say the mother called the worker at New Beginnings Childcare, who apologized several times and told her that her son had just gotten out of jail and couldn't find a job.

Police spokesman Mark Bollinger says no charges have been filed, but investigators are reviewing a state law that makes it illegal to defraud a drug test.

No one answered the phone Wednesday at New Beginnings Childcare.
