(4/26/14) A 30-year-old La Crosse man was charged Friday with reckless endangerment, after he allegedly left two young children alone in a bathtub to go yell at police.

Andre Brown is also charged with possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Prosecutors said police started investigating Brown in March, and they found small amounts of marijuana and crack cocaine in garbage bags outside his house. Thursday, officers stopped his wife for driving without a valid license -- and authorities said Brown appeared and shouted that the police was harassing her. Investigators then obtained a warrant. When they searched Brown's home, they found two kids -- ages 2-and-5 -- in a bathtub filled with seven inches of water. Police said the kids had not eaten for over eight hours, and they notified La Crosse protective services.
