SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

A Sulphur couple is in jail after a young boy was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Daniel L. Hunsucker, 35, and Amanda E. Feemster, 24, have been charged with marijuana possession, drug possession in presence of juveniles and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hunsucker, who was also charged with cruelty to a juvenile, is being held on a $29,000 bond. Feemster's bond was set at $3,500.

"Hunsucker said that during an argument with Feemster he became upset and knocked a door off the hinges," Myers said in a news release. "The door fell on the boy, causing a laceration and bruising on his back."

Myers said the couple told detectives they smoked synthetic marijuana in front of juvenile family members.

"Detectives received consent to search the home and recovered several open bags of synthetic marijuana and several burned hand rolled cigarettes containing suspected marijuana," Myers said.

The child was removed from the home.

    Sunny and nice for Thanksgiving!!!Sunny and nice for Thanksgiving!!!

    The next few days will be rather chilly with temperatures below normal for this time of year!  A warming trend begins this weekend, but the weather still looks great for anything outdoors.  Temperatures will fall rapidly this evening with lows by Thursday morning ranging from the upper 20s north of I-10 to the low 40s at the coast.  The wind may not calm entirely and that might keep frost from becoming widespread north of I-10.
