METAIRIE - Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies say a mother and father passed out on heroin with their two young sons in the car.

Col. John Fortunato, a spokesman for the sheriff's office, says 41-year-old Michael Pierce and 34-year-old Melanie Pierce, of Denham Springs, were found Sunday in their car in the parking lot of a Metairie restaurant.

Fortunato says they face charges that include endangering a child, having drugs and paraphernalia in the presence of a child and possession of heroin.

He says the children, aged 4 years and 11 months, were taken to the hospital, but suffered no injuries. Fortunato says the children were then released to their grandparents.

It was unclear if the Pierces have an attorney.
