hotel room, but they refused to go.
Officers Zimmerman and Dobbs arrived and found the caller and several other
people, including a 3-year-old child, inside the hotel room. The caller was
delusional from drug usage and showed officers drug paraphernalia used for
smoking methamphetamine. As Officers Zimmerman and Dobbs investigated,
they located over 66 grams of methamphetamine, small quantities of marijuana
and Xanax, scales, syringes and other items used to sell narcotics. In addition,
several hundred dollars in cash was located with the methamphetamine.

endangering a child (State jail felony). Dollahite was booked into the Gregg
County Jail and the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services
