Father charged with child neglect after incident at hotel

GOODLETTSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A father is facing charges after police say his small children were found wandering around a hotel in Goodlettsville on Saturday.

The two 5-year-olds were allegedly found running around the America's Best Value Inn on Rivergate Parkway and playing in the street by themselves.

Police say the children's father, Dustin King, was found passed out drunk in the room.

Officers say they found the man's 8-month-old daughter strapped in a car seat in the room. They say her diaper hadn't been changed for hours.

King was charged with child neglect.

DCS and the children's mother were called to the scene.
