A new story reveals what one California teen would do for a quick hit of Google chrome. A 15-year-old was busted by Rocklin police on Saturday for spiking her parents' milkshakes with powerful sleeping pills so she could get online. Her parents had apparently imposed a 10 pm household curfew for internet use, which she told police was "too strict." On Friday night, according to Lt. Lon Milka, the girl and her friend supplied her parents with milkshakes, which the parents say "tasted funny and were grainy." Still, they drank enough to fall fast asleep, only to wake up with "hangover symptoms," which persisted throughout the next day. After purchasing drug testing kits to use on themselves, and testing positive, they alerted the police. The girls were arrested on charges of conspiracy and willfully mingling a pharmaceutical with food, and were taken to juvenile hall. The District Attorney's Office will decide if the crime justifies adult punishment. Says Milka: "the girls wanted to use the Internet, and they'd go to whatever means they had to."
