PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A Valley father is accused of giving his infant son meth.

Officers arrested Christopher Telles, 24, on Wednesday at his home on one count of child abuse.

Police said he brought his 11-week-old baby boy into the Maricopa County Hospital about 7 a.m. on April 27, because the child was having seizures.

Police said during an interview with Telles at the hospital the following day, he admitted crushing meth with his thumb at his apartment about 4 a.m. and then used that same thumb with the drug on it to "calm" his crying son, according to the police report.
