Reggie Stewart Accused Of Making 10-month-old Take 'Ice Bucket Challenge'

A grandfather in Houston, Texas, may be in trouble with the law after allegedly making his 10-month-old granddaughter take the ice bucket challenge.

Earlier this week, Reggie Stewart posted a video of himself taking the ice bucket challenge. While he is challenging others, the granddaughter sits in a walker trying to grab the bucket full of ice.

"I've been called out for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge… and my granddaughter … is going to do it with me," he said a few seconds before dumping the freezing water on himself and the child.

The video ends before the girl's reaction can be seen, but the sight of a little girl being drenched with at least a gallon of chilly water left a burning impression on Claude Dalcour, who claims to be the girl's father.

"I was shocked, appalled. It brought me to tears, like I was hurt, angry. That's all I can say," Dalcour told Fox26.com. "It's abuse because my daughter is an infant. She doesn't know what's going on."

Dalcour said he is still married to the girl's mother, but the two are separated.

Dalcour said he reported the video to local law enforcement officers, who have reportedly visited Stewart's home to check on the child’s welfare, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texas Department of Children and Families was also contacted, but the agency would not confirm whether it is investigating the allegations, KHOU TV reports.

Stewart has not been charged with any crime, the station reports.

Stewart has not responded to media inquiries, but has since removed the video from his page.

He still has a photo of the girl as his profile picture.
