MARBLEHEAD, Ohio — Danbury Township Police are recommending to the Ottawa County prosecutor a felony charge of child endangerment against a woman who they believe left her 21-month-old alone in her car while she went drinking.
Police said a grand jury would have to be convened before charges could be filed against the 28-year-old mother from Grafton, Ohio.
Police were called Saturday evening to Woods Restaurant and Pizzeria after employees and visitors at a nearby campground reported seeing a child strapped in a car seat. The child wasn't hurt. The child's grandfather took custody of the child.
