Girl, 4, Calls 911 on ‘Passed Out' Dad in NJ Car

A 4-year-old New Jersey girl called 911 to say her father had passed out in their car over the weekend, and the 41-year-old man was arrested, according to police and a published report. 

The girl called 911 around 9:30 p.m. Saturday and police found her and her father in the car near Palisade and Lafayette avenues in Cliffside Park. 

The child wasn't harmed. Her father, Jamil Graham, of Englewood Cliffs, allegedly had a half-full bottle of vodka in the vehicle and failed field sobriety tests, reported. 

He was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and remanded to the Bergen County Jail in lieu of bail. 

It wasn't immediately clear if Graham had an attorney. His daughter was released to a relative, said.
