- A one-year-old baby was hospitalized in Rhinelander after digesting marijuana.
Twenty-one-year-old Anika Wildcat-Chapman was babysitting the one-year-old between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on August 5.
According to the criminal complaint, Wildcat-Chapman left the child with her mother to buy an edible marijuana cookie at a friend's house.
When she returned home, Wildcat-Chapman left the cookie on top of the dishwasher.
The child's parents picked up the child and later noticed the child was lethargic and not acting "normal."
The parents brought the baby to St. Mary's Hospital in Rhinelander and the child tested positive for marijuana.
The child was flown to a different hospital for further care.
On August 6, an officer from the Rhinelander Police Department spoke with Wildcat-Chapman. Wildcat- Chapman told the officer, "The child must have reached the cookie and ate some of it."
The criminal complaint said Wildcat-Chapman was remorseful and felt responsible for the child's condition.
She is free on a $1,000 cash bond.
