Cops: Man left pit bull to babysit infant while he drank at bar

A Palm Coast, Fla., 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.

A bar employee verified that she had served him five Coronas and one Bud Light.

The baby was found crying inside a room with the door shut and the pit bull was sitting outside of it, the report said.

Someone clearly got drunk and watched Peter Pan and thought "Well gee a dog for a babysitter!"

My god and ya just know the mom will stay with this jerk is he the dad? At least the kid was not in the car.

I really don't get it my folks were INSANE and no one ever left a kid with a dog or in a hot car to die

Well... Clearly in this case, the dog was a better caregiver than the dad.
