After consuming some of Ekaette’s cake, the woman began to feel “hazy” and out of sorts, according to the court’s prosecutors. The woman decided to go to the nearest hospital emergency room to seek treatment. After the woman and child were evaluated by doctors, it was discovered that both she and the boy had ingested marijuana.
Police arrested Ekaette Saturday night. Remnants of the cake were sent to an Illinois State police crime lab for further analysis.
When Ekaette was escorted into a Cook County courtroom on Sunday, he was allegedly smiling as he stood before the presiding judge, who slapped him with a $50,000 bond.
