A Long Island guy is in major trouble after a perfectly innocent evening spent hanging with his 5-year-old son in a parking lot went terribly wrong, all thanks to some nosy cops. Christopher Grossman, 37, was spotted Tuesday night just chilling with the little man around 11:30 in a parking lot in Seaford, standing next to a car with the music "blasting." A Nassau County police officer decided to see what was up, and noticed that the car's interior was a disgusting mess, overflowing with trash, clothing, golf clubs, and bottles of anti-freeze and laundry detergent surrounding the child's car seat.
Being a slob isn't necessarily illegal, but it's what happened next that got Grossman in trouble: A sergeant who arrived at the scene asked to see the inside of his home to make sure that the boy's living conditions were safer than his car seat, and Grossman, stupidly, led them to his Bethpage home. Police say the residence—besides being deplorably filthy—was also being used as a marijuana grow house. Cops found 18 marijuana plants and an elaborate lighting and ventilation system in a room. Also, there was a marijuana pipe on a desk and four stems of a marijuana plant on the kitchen table.
The place really was a disaster, too; Fox has some footage and photos of the interior. Grossman was arrested and charged with first-degree criminal possession of marijuana, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful dealing with a child. The boy is now staying with relatives who are hopefully less slovenly/stoned/stupid.
