A Palm Coast man has been arrested on suspicion he had his pit bull watch a 10-month-old baby while he went out to drink beer, authorities say.
James R. Irvine, 41, was arrested Saturday and faces one charge of child neglect, according to online jail records. He was held on $1,500 bond.
Flagler County Sheriffs Office deputies said Irvine's girlfriend left him in charge of her child while she was away at work. After not answering several of her calls that evening, Irvine eventually picked up and said, "I'm watching the game," according to an arrest form.
The woman said she found Irvine trying to get into the house and that he was urinating on himself, according to the report.
He admitted to his girlfriend that he had been having a few drinks, but told her the baby wasn't alone because their pet pit bull was watching it, deputies said.

What a moron, on two accounts.
Rather have a sober pit bull babysit than a dunk that pees himself.
The guy was drunk and pissing himself after six beers? Lightweight!
On a more serious note, I hope they throw the book at him.
Can you clarify the man or woman? Both are culpable.
What the cops didn’t shoot the pit bull? Don’t let them know one got away....**major dripping sarc**?
Pit bulls. MIA babydaddy. Live in Boyfriend drunk and urinating on himself. Leaving the dog to be the nanny.
Some people just got class!/s
Flagler County Sheriffs Office deputies said Irvine’s girlfriend left him in charge of her child....
The most dangerous person likely to harm a child? Mommy’s boyfriend.
Thank God for the pit bull. That’s a safer alternative to the latest (bleep) Mommy is (bleeping).
A woman should not be afraid to leave a baby with the father.
The father was an idiot to leave the baby and with a dog as a babysitter, wrong on two accounts.
Anyone that would leave an infant unattended is a despicable low-life! :-(
The drunk idiot was Mommy’s boyfriend.
Not the father.
I would be willing to bet that there was prior behaviors that would have been a good indicator this guy was a loser. This was not his first rodeo.
We have a real Rube Goldberg there!
Weren’t there any Poodles available?
Another irresponsible woman bringing an unreliable man into her child’s life.
This usually turns out much, much worse.
The dog took better care of the baby than the supposed adults.
Well, at least it wasn’t a dingo.
“The guy was drunk and pissing himself after six beers? Lightweight!”
I need to know how cold it was outside before I convict. Below zero, well, stuff happens.
Or “Peter Pan”, another story with a dog nanny.
How could I forget Peter Pan?
“How could I forget Peter Pan?”
Probably because you let yourself grow up when you weren’t paying attention!
If the dog was an Irish Sitter, it would have been OK.
“If the dog was an Irish Sitter, it would have been OK.”
Heh heh heh...doggone right.
