TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Prosecutors say a Pierce County woman has been charged with third-degree assault of a child after her 13-month-old son drank out of a sippy cup that had been converted into a bong for smoking meth.

KOMO-TV reports (https://is.gd/cFr5ed ) court documents say 26-year-old Amber Alline Ingersoll dropped her son at the home of his grandmother on Oct. 17, along with a diaper bag that contained a meth-contaminated sippy cup.

After the boy drank from the cup, his grandmother noticed he could not stand up and appeared to be sick. The grandmother, a former meth addict, said she recognized the sippy cup was a homemade bong. She took him to a hospital where the boy tested positive for methamphetamine.

Ingersoll was charged Tuesday.
