BROOKSVILLE, Fla. -- The Hernando County Sheriff's Office says 35-year-old George Denty is accused of dragging his two children through the woods while being high on meth.

The arrest report states Denty admitted to being high on meth and leaving his home late at night dragging his two children with him through the woods in a panicky state of mind.

The man told deputies he thought people were out to harm him.

His daughter was found wearing a soaked flower dress with shorts and wearing no shoes, deputies say. Her brother was wearing a soaked t-shirt, pair of swimming trunks and was also barefoot.

Both children sustained dozens of cuts to their back, legs, arms and face. Both were treated by Fire Rescue.

Denty admitted to snorting a one-inch length line of meth prior to leaving his home. He is being held at the Hernando County Detention Center.
