Boy in school heroin shock

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

A MAS­SACHUSETTS man has pleaded not guilty to drug charges after claims his fiveyear-old son brought heroin to school and said when he tasted it he be­came Spi­der-Man.

Benny Gar­cia, 29, was ar­raigned in Holyoke Dis­trict Court on charges of drug pos­ses­sion and reck­less en­dan­ger­ment of a child.

Prose­cu­tors say Gar­cia’s son brought a plas­tic bag dec­o­rated with Spi­der-Man to kinder­garten and put it in his mouth, telling a teacher eat­ing the pow­der turns him into the su­per­hero.

Po­lice say they found more than 200 bags of heroin and co­caine at Gar­cia’s home.
