MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Police have accused a New Hampshire man of endangering the welfare of a child, saying they found him passed out in an SUV with a syringe near a 4-year-old in the back seat.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2s24ZpY) 34-year-old Benjamin Philbrick, of Milford, also was arraigned Friday on a charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated. He was held on $5,000 bail. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer; a message was left at a phone number.

Police said Philbrick was driving in Manchester on Thursday when he passed out. They said his car was running when officers arrived and smelled alcohol on Philbrick’s breath. They found two syringes, one of which was near the child, who wasn’t restrained. The syringe, which was uncapped and contained a brownish liquid, was being tested.

Police said the child wasn’t hurt and was placed in a family member’s custody.
