In Shirley, Long Island, New York (in Suffolk County) a man was arrested for taking his son out of school so that he could urinate in a coffee cup to help him pass his pre-employment drug test yesterday. The father, 36-year-old Brandon Costantino from the city of Centereach, was arrested on child-endangerment and marijuana possession charges. Detective Sergeant Stephen Guyer was quoted saying that Costantino was “remorseful.” The boy, who’s name was not released was turned over to his mother.
Here’s the even more disturbing part – cops became suspicious of the pair after seeing them behind a deli – so not only does the father take his kid out of school to pee for him, but he has him do it behind a deli! I mean, truancy is one thing, but this is just stupid – this guy needs to get the maximum penalty (which is whatever it is for I’m assuming a Class A Misdemeanor, which is what reckless endangerment falls under, and most states make that some amount of money plus up to a year in jail – but I couldn’t find anything in terms of punishment for New York).
