A man and woman were arrested early Sunday after two children were found alone in a hotel room, according to an arrest report.

Officers with the Little Rock Police Department said they were dispatched to the Little Rock Marriott on Statehouse Plaza in reference to two children being found unattended in one of the rooms. Police said the children were turned over to the Department of Human Services.

Heather Atkins, 34, and Martin Atkins, 28, both of Hampton, were arrested and charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a minor after they returned to the hotel room several hours later.

    Yes, how old? It’s the difference between terrible child neglect/abuse and a simple mistake in judgment.

    I commend the usual suspects here for never using racial slurs when the instances where a black is involved. You know a thug is a thug, and a bad parent is a bad parent without referring to their name or how they look or , you know the things that others use to say snarky to pile on any minority when they do what humans do, err. Refreshing.

    Sure look sleepy dont they.

    At least they didnt turn them over to child molesters like the former deity follower from West Fork.
