Waterloo girl chokes on bag of pot

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A Waterloo couple is facing numerous charges after police say a 7-month old girl choked on a bag of marijuana.

Officers were sent to 314 Randolph Street, Apartment 106, for a reported assault.

Once on scene, Amanda Mallit, 18, told officers that she was pregnant and was assaulted.

While paramedics were taking Mallit to the hospital along with the child, the child began choking.

According to court records, paramedics removed a bag of what they believed to be marijuana from her throat. 

A later search of the home turned up more marijuana that was in reach of the baby, according to court records.

After being released from the hospital, Mallit was taken to the police department.

While there, court records state that Mallit became upset and emotional.

Police say Mallit resisted officers and shook the child violently.

Mallit faces two counts of child endangerment and one count of interference with official acts.

Horace Phillip, 18, who also lives in the apartment, faces one count of child endangerment and one count of possession of a controlled substance after he admitted to owning the marijuana.
