Two parents face charges after they allegedly overdosed on heroin in their car while their two-year-old daughter was in the backseat.
Leslie Lucas, 23, and Lindsey Vincion, 25 have been arrested after a passerby accused them of being unconscious inside a car that was still running.
When police and paramedics arrived they found the pair unresponsive, suspecting them to have overdosed.
The couple were given several doses of Narcan, The Sun reports.
When Vincion came round, she told paramedics she and her husband had snorted heroin as they drove, it is alleged.
Their child was strapped to a car seat in the back, according to local reports.
A police report reveals that they had pulled over to take a nap when they were spotted by a concerned pedestrian.
Lucas and Vincion, of Nashville, USA, are currently being held in Metro Jail.
They were arrested on Thursday, according to police.
