BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man is accused of leaving his 4-year-old son in a truck for three hours while he drank at a bar over the weekend.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1yL6DdY ) reports 32-year-old Paul Lee Fox Jr. of Parshall was charged Monday with felony child neglect and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He faces up to ten years in prison if convicted of the felony charge.

Bismarck Police Sgt. Mark Buschena says a witness called police on Sunday after discovering the child in a vehicle parked outside Sickie’s Garage Burgers and Brews.

Buschena says officers arrived on the scene and also found a marijuana pipe sitting in plain view in the truck’s center console, as well as a jar containing marijuana residue.

It wasn’t immediately known if Fox has an attorney.
