Danilo Mercado was trying to make the best of his daughter’s birthday after having to spend it in prison, but he has found himself in some seriously hot water after a picture of her on his lap surfaced, rolling what appears to be a joint.
His daughter was allowed to visit him at San Felipe jail in Argentina, and despite the photos being taken down, the 20-year-old inmate has found himself being investigated by authorities.
The pictures were posted to Facebook along with the caption:
Happy birthday, love of my life. Five years old and you’re so big you’ll even roll Daddy’s joints for him. I love you, you beautiful little rascal.Advertisement
Obviously the post has been taken down, but Mercado is still being investigated and his mother is furious, claiming that it was just a bit of paper that she was licking, and that Mercado loves his daughter ‘more than anything in the world’.
