41-year-old James R. Irvine leaves his girlfriend’s 10-month-old baby home alone with a pit bull while he goes out for a few drinks.
“According to investigators, the baby’s mother left Irvine in charge while she went to work. The woman told investigators when she got home, Irvine was trying to get in the garage door and admitted he’d been at a bar. Officials said Irvine told the baby’s mother the baby wasn’t alone, because the pit bull was watching him.”
When the child’s mother arrived, “the dog was sitting outside the room, the door was shut and the baby was crying.”
Irvine was charged with one count of child neglect but was released on a $1,500 bond.
