Adrian Dreshaun Middleton, 26, reportedly left the little girl and his one-year-old son in the vehicle while he went shopping in a charity shop in Houston, Texas.
According to court documents, he told investigators the children were in an air-conditioned car with snacks, water and a film to watch while he shopped for clothes.
When he returned his daughter was crying in the backseat, the documents said.
She is said to have told investigators she was playing with her brother but became angry when he would not stop crying and wrapped the seatbelt around him.
When he became unconscious she thought he had fallen asleep.
Surveillance footage shows Middleton was in the store for around an hour and a half. He reportedly turned himself in to police over the incident.
The girl, who is staying with her grandmother, will not face charges because of her age, Houston police told ABC.
