Dad leaves baby in car while he gets drunk


When a Twin Cities man was told he couldn't bring his 1-year-old son into the bar while he chugged a couple cold brews, he thought of the next best thing: Leave his kid alone in his truck and drink at the bar anyway.

Police say the 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment after an officer found the child alone in the car while the man was drinking in the bar.

We can't think of a better man to win a father of the year award.

Police say the man came to Champion's Sports Bar and Grill on W. Lake Street Friday with his son in tow. The bouncer and off-duty cop told him he couldn't bring his son in. The man allegedly left the bar and came back to the establishment 30 minutes later without his son.

The officer got a little suspicious and searched the parking lot. Sure enough, the 1-year-old was chilling alone in the car.
