TV reporters charged after baby found with cocaine in system

Two Arizona TV reporters are charged after their breastfed baby found with cocaine in system

They report the news and now they are the headlines. Married TV reporters Krystin and Somchai Lisaius in Arizona were arrested for drug and child abuse charges.

The charges came after their 4-month-old baby tested positive for cocaine. Investigators say Krystin Lisaius, 26, breastfed her infant after ingesting cocaine during a party at the couple's home near Tucson.

The child apparently became lethargic and wasn't eating properly. The couple reportedly refused to let the hospital test the child's blood.

The couple was indicted on charges of possession of a dangerous drug, drug paraphernalia and child abuse on June 9.

Somcahi Lisaius has been fired from his job as a crime reporter. The baby is now with Krystin's grandmother.
