An Iowa man was arrested for child endangerment when he left two kids, a 2 year old and a five year old, along the side a busy highway so he could go hunt for “asparagus”.
Authorities says the man’s 5-year-old niece was outside the car crying when the passer-by stopped to help. The man’s 2-year-old son was asleep in the back seat.
Chief Deputy Duane Bates said the man was in a ditch about a half mile from the car. He didn’t have any wild asparagus when the deputy found him.
The man, who also was charged with drug possession, was released from theafter posting bond.
