A man was arrested after his juvenile girlfriend used an electronic cannabis device in Woodstock which reportedly caused her to “hallucinate and run in to the street,” court documents said.
Aaron Montgomery, 21, of Woodstock, was charged with child endangerment and contributing to the criminal delinquency of a minor.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Montgomery “knowingly contributed to causing the endangerment of a child” on December 11.
Montogomery gave his 17-year-old girlfriend an electronic cannabis smoking device for her consumption, the complaint said.
The girl began hallucinating and ran into the street, requiring her to ultimately be hospitalized, the complaint said.
Montogomery told the person who reported the incident to the police that he let the girl use his smoking device, the complaint added.
The incident happened at Montgomery’s residence in the 300 block of Hoy Avenue in Woodstock.
The case was investigated by the Woodstock Police Department.
The charges were filed in McHenry County Circuit Court on December 28 and a warrant was issued.
Montogomery was processed in the McHenry County Jail and has since been released.
He posted a $100 cash bond and is scheduled to appear in court on January 26 for a plea hearing.
