A man was arrested in Florida on Sunday after allegedly stumbling into a strip club and asking a clerk to watch his child.

Police said that Kenneth Rowe, 26, walked into Daytona Beache’s The SHARKLOUNGE, a combination liquor store and strip club, on Sunday night drunk and carrying an 11-month-old baby with a rash on its face.

After asking a clerk in the liquor store area to watch the baby, he vanished into the connected strip club.

Thankfully, Florida’s WFTV 9 noted that club staff called the police after about 15 minutes, saying that the child looked hungry.

Rowe now faces a charge of child neglect, a third-degree felony that carries a sentence of up to five years in prison.
