Dad leaves baby at liquor store, comes back drunk to pick child up: police

This guy won’t be winning Father of the Year awards anytime soon.

Kenneth Rowe of Daytona Beach brought his infant child to the Shark Lounge and Liquor Store Sunday night.SharkLounge

The 26-year- old handed the baby to a clerk, went out for a smoke… and disappeared.

By the time he came back he was drunk, and the clerk had called police.

Police say Rowe left the store with the baby, wandered into traffic and laid down in the street. The pathetic papa then hid from police in the bushes, but the scared tot gave him away by crying in the cold.

He’s been charged with child neglect, and the baby has been returned to the mother.

      Im sure if this were a woman though you would insist she made a tragic mistake and she should still be able to see her child

        Are you being serious. Anyone who lays down in the middle of traffic, drunk, with their child should deserve to have that child taken away. Some people make legit parenting mistakes that can get out of hand, REGARDLESS of gender, and this is not one of them. Who would say 'Uh oh, that lady got drunk and laid down in the middle of traffic with her baby – Goodness, I hope she sees right so she can get that doomed child back!' No one.
        Not sure if you're trolling or just dumb and/or sexist. Just because you think that the opposite sex only has unrelenting sympathy for the same gender doesn't mean everyone else does. That's narrow-minded and bigoted.

      Oh calm down lady. The guy needs help with a drinking problem. Can it with the forever and ever bs. When sober, he's probably an okay guy, and the kid needs a dad. We know how poorly children often turn out without a father figure. Perhaps you need a stiff drink to relax. I'll buy you a bottle over at the Shark Lounge. You could use it.

        I just think that the only response being an irrelevant and sexist one was an inappropriate response and was trying to make a point.
        I see where you are coming from however I do not believe that a drinking problem = laying down in traffic with your scared, crying child. That exceeds the term 'drinking problem' by a little bit, I think. Perhaps you could argue that at some point, with alcohol assuredly out of the equation and with a lot of re-thinking that perhaps this man could eventually be a fit parent again. However until then he should not be taking care of a child.
        The argument that he's 'probably an okay guy' when he's sober is made ironic in perspective of that when he is drunk he is extremely neglectful and pretty much tries to kill his kid. I'm sure the kid needs a proper parent figure more than he needs a drunken biological father figure with some homicidal/suicidal tendencies.

    Uh, read it again:

    "By the time he came back he was drunk, and the clerk had called police."

    The clerk did call the police before the father came back.

    Kinda, gotta wonder why the idiot clerk gave the kid to a drunk. Go figure.

    The guy did do wrong but find the underlying problem correct it. No child should ever grow up with a mother and a dad.

    Whilst you could get a partner or close friend to give your shoulders, back or feet a good rub down, to truly feel
    long-term benefits you should enlist the services of a trained professional to
    give you regular massages. Palma has a range of top-notch clubs, and Tito’s is one of the most
    popular. If we relate to the recession with fear, then it will close us down further.
