ROCK HILL, S.C. — A day care worker is under fire after she allegedly made an 8-year-old boy pee in a cup so her son could pass a drug test, WBTV reports.

The assistant director at New Beginnings Childcare in Rock Hill said her son had just been released from jail and needed a urine sample to get a job.

A police report said the woman woke the boy during nap time and told him to “go in the bathroom and pee in a medicine bottle.”

No charges are expected.

The investigation is ongoing and no names have been released.
