A Waterloo man is charged with child endangerment for allegedly leaving a toddler outside for 20 minutes wearing just a diaper.

Police arrested 25-year-old Shane Spooner Monday evening.

A neighbor called authorities after finding the two-year-old outside.

Authorities say the child didn’t show any signs of frostbite or other injuries, but the Department of Human Services is investigating, which is typical in these sorts of cases.
