Updated: Wednesday, June 25 2014, 06:23 PM CDT
A West Texas father has been charged after his 2-year-old son drowned in an outdoor pool as the man allegedly played video games.
 
Jones County jail records show 20-year-old Austin Garrett of Anson was being held Wednesday on a charge of abandoning-endangering a child. Anson police on Tuesday announced the arrest of Garrett, whose bond was set at $75,000.
 
Police in Anson, about 20 miles northwest of Abilene, on June 4 responded to a call about a possible drowning in an above-ground pool at a home. Emergency personnel were not able to revive Brendyn Garrett.
 
Police say the father purposely left the toddler outside while playing a video game with a relative.
 
Jail records don't list an attorney for the father.
