Daddy will be right back

Not in the running for father of the year:

A father who left his 5-year-old son in his semi-trailer truck while he ducked into a Near-Southside strip club was charged with felony neglect and public intoxication this morning.

Donald Crawford, 39, Franklin, was arrested at 1:15 a.m. when he left Sassy Kat's Showclub and called police to report his truck stolen and his child missing.

Police said he was simply too drunk to remember where he had parked.

Police found Crawford's son inside watching cartoons on a television inside the cab, the report read.

The story says a bartender told police Crawford had been drinking for 45 minutes, in the strip club, and that his wife drove from Frankling to pick up the boy. Bet that's suddenly turned into an interesting household, for as long as it lasts.
