Sources tell News4 the daughter of former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty was briefly taken into custody by officials from Child and Family Services on Tuesday evening after being found alone in a bathroom at a recreation center.
D.C. police were called to the Upshur Recreation Center in Northwest after a woman who appeared to be drunk tried to claim the four-year-old girl, police said.
Sources told News4 that woman is the sister-in-law of Adrian Fenty. No charges have been filed in the case.
Calls to Fenty were not returned Tuesday night. The child was returned to the family, authorities said.
The former mayor and his wife, Michelle, reportedly separated earlier this year.
