In North Carolina, a U.S. Army soldier was taken into custody after overdosing in a hot car with his 4-year-old stepdaughter in the backseat.
Jessie Andrew Davis, 25, of Fort Bragg, was charged with a misdemeanor for child abuse and a misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to The Fayetteville Observer.
Officials said Friday night Davis used narcotics at a Walgreens parking lot with his stepdaughter and two acquaintances in the car.
First responders found Davis unconscious around 7 p.m. and administered Narcan to revive him.
The stepdaughter was found “drenched in sweat,” the Fayetteville Observer reported. It was nearly 90 degrees outside at the time of the incident.
The two friends who have not been identified fled the scene before authorities arrived.
Davis was arrested Saturday and brought to Cumberland County Jail, where his bail was set at $25,000. Reportedly, he is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 10.
