Man Left Pit Bull to Babysit Baby While He Drank at Bar: Deputies
6 South Florida News ^ | 12-5-12

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 Sheriff’s 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.

Probably the best decision.

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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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.

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.

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.

You are a bigot. Don't you know that Liberals teaches that a family can be anything - unmarried couples or homosexuals raising children that aren't theirs? /sarc

It kills me how Libs and their media lapdogs snicker at us Conservatives who support traditional families as the ideal in our society, while they celebrate the perversion and degradation of the culture.

I need to know how cold it was outside before I convict. Below zero, well, stuff happens.

“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.
