Man Arrested For Putting A Vape Into A Baby’s Mouth 

A man was arrested for putting a vape into a baby's mouth

These past few days, a 15-second video of a man putting a vape into a baby’s mouth has been going viral as people are mad about his dangerous action to the baby. This incident is believed to occur in Johor Bahru. The man who gave the vape to the baby has admitted his fault and apologized for his action on his instagram story on 6 August 2022. 

According to the Police Head Officer at Johor Bahru Utara district, Asisten Komisioner Rupiah Abd Wahid, he and his team received a report made to the Social Welfare Department (JKM) regarding the viral video that was circulating on social media. The suspect was arrested and the case will be investigated.

The man explained that the vape was not functioning anymore, and he did that just to a baby. However, the statement given by him sounded not convincing because it was really strange and illogical behavior. People were also questioning why he brought along a malfunctioning vape device with him. 

This incident really taught him and all of us to think before doing anything. Even if the vape was not functioning anymore, anyone should have never done that action.
