Man arrested for leaving 2 kids in bar parking lot while he drank12/9/2012
And now, from the Tales of Terrible Parenting That Could Have Ended Waaaaay Worse: A 31-year-old Broken Arrow, Okla., man was arrested on Thursday night after leaving his two children inside a car in a bar parking lot while he went to drink. The kids — aged 5 months (!) and 2 years — were luckily OK, though the 2-year-old has health issues and is currently awaiting surgery for a heart defect. The slurring perp, Jason Daniel Murray, was booked on charges of child abuse and neglect. And it gets worse — per an arrest report, Murray refuted leaving the tots in the car, claiming "someone else must have put the kids in the car while he was inside." Denial ain't just a river in Egypt, dude. [Source]
