Police in Connecticut say a video that appears to show a 3-year-old boy smoking marijuana has led to the arrest of his parents. Police in Middletown say they found the video on a digital camera while executing a search warrant Feb. 2 at the home of the parents, 23-year-old Kristian Augeri and 22-year-old Thomas Way.

Officers also say they found weapons and drugs.

The Middletown Press reports the video shows the boy appearing to inhale from a glass pipe and then coughing. The newspaper reports Augeri appears to be filming the scene and laughing, while Way is seen giving the pipe to the boy.

Augeri and Way are being held on $150,000 bonds on several charges.

The boy's aunt told WTNH-TV that the boy didn't smoke anything and police are "misinformed."
