Man Leaves Pit Bull To Babysit Infant Child

PALM COAST, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A local man is facing child neglect charges after he reportedly left an infant in the care of a pit bull while he went out to drink.

The mother of the 10-month old left her child in the care of 41-year-old James Irvine, WESH is reporting. However, Irvine soon abandoned the child to go out drinking.

The station learned that when the mother arrived home, she discovered Irvine trying to get back into the house through the garage door.

He allegedly told her that, though he had been at a bar, he did not leave the child alone – rather, it was in the care of a pit bull.

According to reports, the dog was seated outside the room where the child was left. The door was shut, and the child was allegedly crying, WESH additionally learned.

He was reportedly arrested around 12:30 a.m. Saturday after police were called to the residence.
