Indiana Man Keeps Priorities Straight, Goes to See Strippers, Then Goes To Jail
Police: Dad leaves boy in truck and goes into strip club
Nov 24 2009
INDIANAPOLIS— A man was arrested after police said he left his 5-year-old son in a tractor-trailer while he ducked into an Indianapolis strip club to drink and slip five dollar bills into the G-strings of strippers. The 39-year-old was arrested at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday on child neglect and public intoxication charges after calling police to report his truck stolen and his child missing. Police said the man was too drunk to remember where he had parked the truck with the boy inside.
They found the boy in the truck watching cartoons on a television inside the cab. The keys were in the ignition, and the doors were unlocked.
Police said the suspect put his son in jeopardy by leaving him exposed in a high crime area. No kidding?
The man was taken to the Marion County jail, where his wife picked up him and the child. Somehow, that seems like an unsatisfactory ending to this story. Where the hell was CPS?
