Par­ents be­ing investigated over YouTube chan­nel

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

Au­thor­i­ties are try­ing to de­ter­mine whether a cou­ple who posted con­tro­ver­sial videos of them­selves and their five chil­dren had bro­ken the law.

Heather Martin of Ijamsville told the Bal­ti­more Sun that she and her hus­band, Mike, had “made some ter­ri­ble par­ent­ing de­ci­sions.”

The cou­ple had up­loaded nearly 300 videos to their “Dad­dyOFive” YouTube chan­nel. In them, the par­ents screamed pro­fan­i­ties at their chil­dren, broke their toys and filmed the chil­dren fight­ing each other. Many videos had more than 100,000 views. The chil­dren are all un­der 15.

Many videos have been deleted. The cou­ple re­leased an apol­ogy video Satur­day.

The Sun re­ported that the Fred­er­ick County Sher­iff’s Of­fice and Bal­ti­more County Po­lice Depart­ment said are re­view­ing the videos to de­ter­mine if a crime has been com­mit­ted.
