Man Left Baby With Pit Bull While He Went Out Drinking Article

A man was arrested after he passed his responsibility for watching over a 10-month-old baby to a pit bull.

James Irvine, 41, of Palm Coast, Fla., was left to babysit while the mother of the baby went to work.

The mother arrived home to discover the baby was alone, crying, and Irvine was trying to get in the garage door.

Irvine admitted he had been at a bar and told the woman the baby was not alone, because the dog was watching him.

The pit bull was sitting outside the room and the door was closed.

Irvine was arrested and is facing charges for child neglect.
