EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

A Warrick County man is charged with child neglect after authorities say he shot drugs into the arm of a teenage girl.  

Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputies arrested 24-year-old Christopher Russelburg over the weekend. 

Authorities were called to a home on Bergdolt Rd. when the residents said a 15-year-old girl knocked on the door, was extremely intoxicated, and was asking for help. 

That teenage girl told authorities Russelberg had shot her up with Opana and records showed the girls arm showed signs of track marks from the alleged injection. 

The girl told authorities Russelberg had given her at least 8 shots of liquor.

The teenager was treated at a local hospital.

Russelberg has since been released from jail.
