U.S. Marshals today arrested Michael A. Clark, 37, of Tulane Avenue, according to jail records. He faces a felony count of child endangering.

Clark’s child reportedly swallowed a suboxone pill left in his truck last year, when the child was 2 years old, and overdosed, according to 21 WFMJ-TV, The Vindicator’s broadcast partner. The child was administered two doses of naloxone, an opioid-reversal drug.
