MUSKEGON, Mich. -- (WXMI) -- Muskegon County authorities are detailing more information about a man who went on a joyride in a construction crane while leaving his two-month-old daughter behind earlier this week.
Muskegon County Prosecutor D.J. Hilson tells FOX 17 that in court petitions, Wolting admitted to telling police that he had forgotten that he had the child with him. The petition also shows that the baby was born addicted to methadone and amphetamines to a mom who had used heroin during pregnancy and has lost parental rights to four other children. The baby was found lying under a chair in the Esco Chemical factory at the address where Wolting was using the crane. The petition says that the baby was naked and dirty and was crying.
