PHOENIX ó A Mesa couple is facing child endangerment charges after a Maricopa County sheriff's deputy found their young children alone in a car in a bar parking lot.

Officer Christopher Hegstrom says the deputy was on routine patrol late Friday night when he drove through a Cave Creek bar parking lot. He spotted the 3- and 4-year-old children in a car and stopped to investigate.

The deputy learned the family arrived at the restaurant and bar at about 8:30 p.m. At about 11 p.m. the parents took the children out to the car and went back inside so they could continue drinking.

The parents came out to the lot as the deputy was investigating and were highly intoxicated.

Mother Desiree David and father Landrey Alex were arrested. The girls are now in the custody of their grandmother.
