Indianapolis, IN (The Weekly Vice) - Donald Crawford, a 39-year-old Indiana man was arrested Tuesday after leaving his 5-year-old son alone in a semi tractor trailer while he was inside a strip club. He then called police when his truck and son turned up missing.
According to Indianapolis police, officers were dispatched to a strip club when Crawford reported his tractor-trailer missing, along with his son who was sleeping inside.
Investigators say Crawford left his son out in the truck while he patronized Sassy Kat's Showclub, a local strip club. When Crawford exited the club and couldn't find his truck, he called police.
Fortunately for Crawford, his truck was right where he left it. He was simply too drunk to remember where he had parked it.
Unfortunately for Crawford, he was arrested for endangering his son's life by leaving him alone.
"The semi truck was still right where he left it," stated the arrest report. "His level of intoxication prevented him from finding it."
Police found the truck along with the boy who was watching cartoons inside the truck's cab. The keys were in the ignition and the doors were unlocked, according to detectives.
Crawford was booked into the Marion County Jail on charges of felony child neglect and public intoxication. The truck was towed away and the boy was turned over to Crawford's wife.
