Police accuse Conn. man of coaching 8-year-old neighbor to swear for video posted to YouTube

A Connecticut man has been arrested on allegations he coached his 8-year-old neighbor to swear and say racial slurs for a video he posted on YouTube.

The boy’s mother told the Connecticut Post that her son was paid $1 to make the video titled “Swearing Kid.” She says the video has upset her family.

Police say the video shows the boy saying obscenities and racial slurs in his front yard, and a man’s voice can be heard encouraging him to make the comments.

Twenty-four-year-old Josh Eastman, of Bridgeport, was charged Tuesday with impairing the morals of a child. He later posted $2,500 bail.

Eastman told the Post that what the boy said on the video wasn’t disgusting. He says it was funny.
