DAVIDSON COUNTY — Three adults were arrested after neighbors found two small children wandering alone on a Davidson County road. The 1-year-old and 2-year-old were found by another child, who notified his mother. Police visited the children’s home and found three adults unconscious and impaired — 20-year-old Austin Sloop, who is the children’s uncle, and 19-year-old Chandler Burgess and Chase Roberts. Sloop was charged with child abuse, and all three received drug charges.
