The New York Times reports that the parents of an 11 year old boy with obesity was arrested. It seems they were charged with “obesity and neglect of children”. The boy weighs 210 pounds and has a BMI of 41.8. The parents were arrested when they brought in the boy the second time for treatment. Apparently, they signed an agreement to improve their son’s health.
