SEYMOUR, IN – Police have arrested a man after he failed to call 911 after his 8-year-old son accidentally ate a large quantity of meth.

On the morning of June 21, Curtis Collman III was in the custody of his father, 41-year-old Gilbert Collman.

The boy decided to eat some cereal he found on a plate at his father’s house, unaware that the cereal was actually meth. Several grams of it.

Before Curtis realized he was not eating cereal, police say he’d eaten enough to kill a grown man.

When his father found his son in medical distress, he did not call 911. Instead, he decided to call a friend to come over and help.

The friend told Gilbert he needed to call 911, but Gilbert wasn’t having it and took the woman’s cellphone to prevent her from calling. According to police, he also held a gun to the woman and threatened her life.

Still unwilling to get his son medical help, Gilbert loaded the boy up and drove him to his parents’ house. Gilbert would later admit to police that his son was so stiff as he drove to his parents that he could not be moved.

Once at his parents, Curtis was already turning blue. Gilbert tried performing CPR and at no time did he instruct anyone to call 911. It was the boy’s grandfather who finally called for help.

By then, it was too late for Curtis and he would die a horrible death.

“You have an eight year old child that most likely suffered for many hours,” said Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Detective Tom Barker. “It upsets you.”

Gilbert was arrested and charged with neglect that led to the death of a dependent and possession of methamphetamine. He’s also facing charges for pointing a firearm, theft and failure to register as a sex offender.

Collman’s previous criminal record includes trafficking and sexual misconduct with a minor. Nice guy.
