The winner of the 'Dumb Thug of the Day' award appears to be Reggie Stewart of Houston. He posted a YouTube video of taking the ice bucket challenge and dousing ice water on his granddaughter. Now Texas child custody officials are investigating the matter.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, "The trend that’s sweeping the globe for a good cause has reportedly gotten a Houston-area family in trouble. A man identified as Reggie Stewart, of Houston, posted an ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ video to his Facebook page. In the video, which has gone viral, he douses himself, and a baby in front of him, with the iced water."
Claude Dalcour, the baby's biological father, is quoted as saying that, “It brought me to tears, like I was hurt, angry … It’s abuse because my daughter is an infant.”
According to the Houston Chronicle, "However, a man who calls himself the child’s father isn’t happy and filed a complaint, Houston’s reported on Thursday. Claude Dalcour said the child in the video is his daughter and the man seen pouring the iced water is his estranged wife’s father."
An investigation is still pending on the case.
