Ohio cop, wife face Fla. child neglect charge

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - An Ohio police officer and his wife face aggravated child neglect charges after their young children were left unsupervised in a truck outside a Panama City Beach bar.

Bay County Jail officials say 35-year-old Michael Webb and 29-year-old Staci Hall left jail Thursday night after posting $500 bonds. The Florida Department of Children and Families took custody of the children, ages 3 and 11 months.

Webb is a police officer with the Ross Township Police Department in Ohio.

The News Herald of Panama City reports Ugly Coyote staff spotted the children sleeping in a truck and called police late Wednesday. The parents were drinking at the bar.

Police found a loaded .40-caliber Glock within reach of the children.

Jail records didn't list an attorney for Webb or Hall.
