LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Two East Texas parents are accused of leaving their kids inside a car while they went into a bar.

Longview police say 24-year-old Tiffany Michelle Little, and 23-year-old James Michael Guin are charged with abandoning or endangering a child. Police say Sunday night, the two went into "The Cloud Nine" bar, leaving the kids in the car with the engine running. Club security noticed the kids inside the car and kicked the two adults out of the bar. Little, the mother of the children, then drove across the street to "The Cotton Club" and parked the car behind the club with the young kids still inside.

Police say Little went inside and drank for more than hour before she was arrested. CPS has turned the children over to a relative.
