A London man accused of leaving his 5-year-old daughter in a hot car for 30 minutes Wednesday while he played video games faces felony charges, according to a sheriff's release.
Ryan Matthew Segraves, 25, was charged with first-degree criminal abuse and first-degree wanton endangerment, according to the release from the Laurel County Sheriff's Department.
While responding to a complaint, a detective and deputy found the girl sitting inside a 2005 Pontiac Grand Am while Segraves played inside a game room in Lily about 6 miles south of London. The outdoor temperature was about 87 degrees.
The girl was released to the custody of a grandmother, said Laurel County Deputy Sheriff Gilbert Acciardo, public affairs officer for the department.
