Grandfather Accused Of Leaving Two Kids In Hot Car In Denison

Posted:
DENISON, TX -- A Lake Kiowa man is under arrest after police say he left 2 grandkids in a hot car in Denison.

Gene Williams, 47, was booked in on a charge of endangering or abandoning a child by criminal negligence.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of S. Armstrong.

Police say Williams claimed the one- and three-year-old children had only been in the car for about 5 minutes while he went inside, and the windows were cracked.

But police believe it may have been around 15 minutes, and say the engine wasn't running.

The kids were okay. Williams is out on a $10,000 bond.
