Michael Howard Patterson, 30, of 692 Boom Station Road, Lawrenceville, faces charges of endangering the welfare of a child after Mansfield borough police were dispatched to a report of an unresponsive driver in a running vehicle in the parking lot of 133 North Main Street in the borough July 26. Police found Patteson unconscious behind the wheel of a Subaru Forester with a five-year-old child in a child restraint seat in the rear of the vehicle. The vehicle was in reverse gear and Patterson’s foot was on the brake pedal, which police said was the only thing keeping the car from rolling into traffic on South Main Street. Two doses of Narcan were administered at which time Patterson allegedly told police that he had shot up two bags of heroin in direct view of the child. Patterson was issued a summons to appear at a Sept. 4 preliminary hearing.
