BCSO reported two children, 3 and 2, were wandering outside and an infant was "hanging half in and half out of the swing" while Andrew Davis was asleep inside.

PANAMA CITY — Authorities have arrested a Bay County man after he fell asleep while he allegedly was supposed to be watching three small children, according to official reports.

Andrew Dalton Davis, 22, appeared in court Friday in connection with the case. The Bay County Sheriff’s Office arrested him after discovering two children, a 3-year-old and 2-year-old, wandering outside while Davis was asleep inside with a child under 1 hanging in a swing in the backyard. Davis is charged with three felony counts of child neglect and possession of Adderall, court records stated.

According to BCSO reports, when officers arrived to ask Davis about the children, he responded that “it ain’t against the (expletive) law to sleep, and I ain’t watching no kids,” officers quoted him as saying.

Deputies had responded about 1 p.m. to Chaucer Circle to a call of two small children in the street and unsupervised. The 3-year-old and 2-year-old then led deputies back to their home, where the officers found Davis asleep on a sofa and an infant in the backyard “hanging half in and half out of the swing,” officers wrote.

The child had discolored limbs, was hard to wake up and was overheated, BCSO reported.

Deputies had a difficult time waking Davis up, too, but when they did, he claimed he was not in charge of the children and that the children’s mother was in the house when he went to sleep.

“Contact was made with the children’s mother, who said not only did Davis know he was supposed to be watching the kids; he was outside when she left and carried two of the kids into the house after they tried to leave with her,” officers wrote.

Deputies also found phone records that indicated Davis was lying about when he went to sleep, BCSO reported. He was taken into custody when officers allegedly discovered an Adderall capsule, for which Davis did not have a prescription, in his possession.

Davis has been given a bond of $9,000 and court ordered to not have contact with the children. The children were not injured during the incident, officers reported.
