PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL (AP/FOX19) - An Ohio police officer and his wife face aggravated child neglect charges after their young children were left unsupervised in a truck outside a Panama City Beach bar.
Bay County Jail officials say 35-year-old Michael Webb and 29-year-old Staci Hall left jail Thursday night after posting $500 bonds. The Florida Department of Children and Families took custody of the children, ages 3 and 11 months. Webb is a part time police officer with the Ross Township Police Department in Ohio's Butler County.
The News Herald of Panama City reports Ugly Coyote staff spotted the children sleeping in a truck and called police late Wednesday.
The parents were drinking at the bar.
Police found a loaded .40-caliber Glock within reach of the children.
Jail records didn't list an attorney for Webb or Hall. On Friday, the Ross Township Police Department placed Webb on administrative leave, pending a disciplinary hearing.
