PHOENIX (AP) - A couple has been arrested for allegedly leaving the woman’s young son inside a car while they gambled at a Scottsdale casino.

Scottsdale police say 23-year-old Brad Porter Jr. and 25-year-old Jessica Lopez were arrested around 3:30 a.m. Sunday outside Casino Arizona.

Court documents state that Lopez’s 5-year-old son was left alone inside the couple’s vehicle and police found marijuana and three bottles of beer inside the car.

Police say Porter and Lopez are facing child abuse, endangerment, drug possession and drug paraphernalia charges.

It was unclear Monday if either Porter or Lopez has an attorney yet.
