Found naked and sleeping, Kingsport dad charged with child neglect

KINGSPORT — A Kingsport man has been arrested after he was allegedly found passed out naked in his apartment while his children, ages 2 and 4, were wandering outside the residence unattended.

A police report states an officer dispatched to the home had to shake the man "several times" to get him awake. Caleb M. Broyles, 23, of 212 Lewis Lane, apartment 23, faces two counts of child neglect in the incident.

According to Kingsport police records, a neighbor observed Broyles' young children outside and alone at approximately 5:30 Thursday evening. The concerned neighbor allegedly yelled into Broyles' residence several times but got no answer, prompting a call to police.
