A Good Samaritan sat in the car next to the 5-month-old baby for 15 minutes before calling the police. When police took the baby out of the car, she was sweaty and distressed, but they said her health will be fine. She is being placed under protective custody.

When Johnson finally got back from his date, police were waiting for him. He is being charged with child endangerment, a felony.
