CARLTON, Ga. (AP) Authorities in northeast Georgia say the father of a 1-year-old girl found crawling along a highway has been charged with child cruelty, reckless conduct and obstruction. <br />
The Athens Banner-Herald reports a man driving along Highway 72 in Carlton called 911 after he spotted the girl and put her in his vehicle Friday. <br />
Madison County sheriff's officials say the girl's father, 37-year-old Timothy Pickens, approached while deputies were investigating and was arrested after a scuffle. <br />
The girl's mother told authorities she and her husband left the house and their other children, ages 13, 9 and 5, were supposed to be watching the baby. <br />
Authorities say charges could be filed against the girl's mother.
A Hall County Commissioner confirmed Monday that his information was part of a data dump of Georgia Ashley Madison customers - a website that is known for assisting users in finding extramarital affairs.
