Police: Child caretaker overdosed, patronized prostitute
HARRINGTON, Del. (AP) — Police in Delaware say a man was caring for a child when he agreed to pay a woman for sex and then overdosed.
Citing a Harrington police report, WMDT-TV reports that 58-year-old Charles Reynolds was found unresponsive in a home on Friday. Emergency services personnel administered the opioid overdose-reversal drug Narcan, and he was hospitalized for treatment.
Further investigation found that Reynolds was caring for a 10-year-old child at the home when he overdosed. A woman who police say he had agreed to pay for sex was also at the home.
Reynolds was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and patronizing a prostitute upon his release from the hospital.
He was later released on $1,100 bail. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
