Upon arrival the deputies located three children, aged 2, 3 and 4, half-clothed playing in the traveled portion of the roadway near the house. The deputies went inside of the house where they found the father of all three children unconscious. Police say the deputies found a prescription bottle without a label on it between the father's legs. The deputies were unable to awaken him and EMS was called.
The paramedics were able awaken the children's father, identified as 26-year-old William Edward Hutson Jr. According to police, the paramedics inquired as to the ownership of the pills and he replied they were his but had been prescribed to his sister.
