Police: Dad Visits Strip Club, Leaves Boy In Truck

Police say they've arrested an Indiana truck driver who went drinking at a strip club after leaving his 5-year-old son in his semitrailer watching cartoons.

n Indianapolis police report says 39-year-old Donald Crawford was arrested early Tuesday on child neglect and public intoxication charges after reporting his truck stolen and son missing. Police said he forgot where he parked.

The boy was found watching a television inside the truck's cab. Police said the keys were in the ignition and the doors were unlocked in a high-crime area of Indianapolis.

The man, from nearby Franklin, was taken to the Marion County jail. Jail records showed he wasn't being held early Thursday, and repeated calls to jail offices seeking details rang unanswered.
