A 20-year-old Mississippi man was arrested after he was found in a cemetery with a group of five girls, two of them unconscious, who were intoxicated on marijuana and the tranquilizer Xanax.
He allegedly met a 16-year-old girl on Facebook, and on Saturday drove to the foster care home and picked her up, along with four other girls.
A resident saw the group on a beach, and called police because they appeared to be intoxicated.
After searching the area, police found McClain and the children in a cemetery, where two of the girls were unconscious. The girls were taken to hospital for treatment, and later released.
All of the girls were found to be under the influence of marijuana and Xanax, allegedly given to them by McClain.
Authorities later returned the girls to the foster care home.
McClain is being held at Jackson County Adult Detention Center on three counts of felony child abuse with serious bodily harm. His bond is set at $8,400 on each charge.
