On Sunday at around 4:00 a.m., the Valparaiso Police responded to the Silhavy Rd. Holiday Inn Express in reference to a disturbance that occurred within a hotel room. Upon arrival, police made contact with 40 year old Christopher Hotter, and 31 Lindsay Littlefield, both of Valparaiso. It was learned the two had been involved in a altercation while sharing a room at the hotel with three juveniles, all of whom were related to them. During the investigation, police noted the extreme intoxication of both Hotter and Littlefield. It was determined they were unfit to care for the children, having placed them in an endangered situation. Hotter and Littlefield were taken into custody on the charge of neglect of a dependent and held at Porter County Jail. The children were released to local family members.
