AZLE -- An Azle couple was arrested at a bar in Reno Friday night and charged with endangering their child and public intoxication.

Police say Brandon and Tracy Murphy left their 12-year-old son in the car while getting drunk at a bar.

A Reno police officer was doing a security check in the area when he found the boy sitting in the driver's seat of a PT Cruiser parked behind the bar. 

The boy told the officer his parents were in the bar and he'd been outside for about 30 minutes.
