Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton made this photograph of a young child hanging from the window of a moving vehicle in downtown Glasgow Monday afternoon.

Around 1:00 p.m. Monday, June 10th, Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton was in a private vehicle traveling around the square in Glasgow when he observed a small child hanging out a rear passenger window of a green four door passenger car that was also occupied by two white males. Sheriff Eaton notified dispatch and continued to follow the vehicle out West Main Street. At one point the child climbed out of the vehicle onto the roof, and then back down to sit on the window sill of the vehicle. The vehicle was also observed swerving in and out of other lanes of traffic. Sheriff Eaton was finally able to get the vehicle to pull over by blinking his head lights. There was a child seat in the vehicle, but it was not in use. The driver told Sheriff Eaton that he was just not paying any attention to what the child was doing, and that he had no idea that the child was hanging out of the vehicle. Backup soon arrived and the two men were arrested and taken to the Barren County Detention Center. Carlos Sexton, 65, of  Glasgow was charged with Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree; Reckless Driving; and Failure to Use Child Restraint Device in Vehicle. Carlos Sexton Jr., 46, also of Glasgow, was charged with Public Intoxication, and Trafficking in Controlled Substance 1st Offense. Sheriff Eaton was assisted by Constable Buddy Houchens, Glasgow Police Chief Guy Turcotte, Sgt. Jennifer Arbogast,  Det. Brian Wise, and Deputies Aaron Bennett and Mike Houchens.

Good job Sheriff Perhaps the authorities and public humiliation will help this person get themselves in control. Before they kill or lose their children.
