MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Police in New Hampshire say a driver was found passed out in his SUV at an intersection with a 9-year-old child asleep in his running vehicle.

Police say 35-year-old Omari Peterson, of Manchester, had his foot on the brake pedal while the vehicle was still in drive on Sunday night. They said he declined to leave the vehicle so they grabbed him. Police say they also found a quarter-ounce of marijuana in the vehicle.

Peterson was charged with resisting arrest/detention, possession of a controlled drug, endangering the welfare of a child and violation of bail conditions.

It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer, and a phone number couldn’t be found for him.
