A teenage babysitter is behind bars after he allegedly smoked marijuana in front of a baby he was supposed to be taking care of.
Harlingen police arrested 19-year-old Mark Anthony Gonzales on child endangerment and marijuana charges early Saturday morning.
Investigators told Action 4 News that officers were called to a disturbance at an apartment complex on the 800 block of North 27th Street around 2:20 a.m. Saturday.
Officers investigating the disturbance allegedly spoke to a Gonzales but noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the apartment.
Police looked inside and learned Gonzales had been smoking marijuana in the same room as a 4-month-old boy.
Gonzales told police that he was babysitting the child for his mother, who was out with a friend.
Paramedics rushed the baby to the Valley Baptist Medical Center for evaluation while officers notified Child Protective Services.
Gonzales appeared before a Harlingen Municipal Court judge where he was issued $5,500 in bonds.

He should be thrown in a dungeon for causing the poor baby to be exposed to child protective services.
This is overkill. Is what he did stupid and wrong? Yes. Should he be punished in some way? Yes. But should the punishment involve jail time for endangering a child? No. If every teenager who smoked pot around a young child went to jail, we’d have a lot of teenagers in jail.
The future of America.
Yep. If you have a problem and call the cops, then you have two problems ... ... ...
Stupid of the parent or parents to hire such a degenerate looking creep to begin with. No surprise he’s a dopehead.
Any pot-smoking filth starts lighting up in front of me in my house, I’d beat the crap out of him, and then call the cops to drag him away.
Oh, yeah, I would let that thing babysit my child. I’ll bet the mother is a real gem, too.

Did not go to the link, but I would be willing to bet he’s momma’s shack-up.
of course I am being sarcastic..
but you stupid voters out there are bringing it on yourself....so good luck when your bus driver or the guying driving the car next to you on the freeway or your babysitter or your barber or your jet pilot takes a weed break...
