Man charged with leaving 3 kids in car outside bar

OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Police say a Florida man is accused of leaving his three children in a car for hours outside a bar while he got drunk inside.

A police report says an officer found 28-year-old Joshua Delong outside of Dr. B's bar in Ocala just after 2 a.m. Thursday with a bleeding head. A security guard told officers that an angry patron punched Delong before he was arrested on child endangerment charges.

Witnesses told police that Delong left his children ages 5, 7 and 8 in a gold Cadillac parked outside while he drank at the bar.

Police say the kids were honking the horn and calling for "daddy" and that the bar's security guard eventually called police when he tried to drive away with the kids.

No phone listing could be found for Delong, and it was not known if he had a lawyer.

He should go to jail, and lose the right to be a father, since the law is for losers he should c no jail time. When these laws were written people have gone nuts and think kids should take care of themselves. That is what is happening to this kids, they have parents who just don't care. Guess his drinking is more important than his kids.

Unfortunately, no, not only in Fl. There have been far too many instances in the last few months. What has happened to common sense?

How come the 8 year old did not call for help? Probably afraid of what this jerk would do. Where was the mother? Too many questions. But I still say, Firing Squad!!!

um he was beeping the horn and calling out for daddy. What more do you want him to do? I dont think 8 yr olds carry cell phones. At least mine dont.
