FLAT ROCK, Ala. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials in northeast Alabama say a Georgia man accused of leaving his 5-year-old son alone in a car during a hunting trip is free on $500 bond.
Jackson County Sheriff's Lt. Rocky Harnen told AL.com (http://bit.ly/1iX93wC ) that 29-year-old Brandon Mark Chambers, of Trenton, Ga., was charged with endangering a child.
