A California man leaves his 9-month-old baby daughter in the car alone at a strip club parking lot.
Just when you thought Antonio Cromartie having trouble remembering his kids names was bad. There's a new contender to the bad daddy throne. Auwin Dargin, 24, left his 9-month-old baby alone in the car at a strip club parking lot. Please take a moment to allow that information to sink in. You still with me? Good.
The California resident visited Synn Gentlemen's Club in North Hills, where staff noticed some odd behavior. Dargin would leave the club every 15 minutes only to return shortly after. The club's assistant manager Matthew Nadeau became curious and decided to go out into the parking lot to see what Dargin was up to.
Much to his shock Nadeau found a 9-month-old baby locked in a car. Nadeau, assisted by employees from a neighboring business, were able to free the crying child from the car.
The child was agitated and warm, and she was given water by the club's wait staff. Shortly after, the club’s manager grabbed a hold of the child's father in the middle of a lap dance… in the middle of a lap dance! When confronted about the situation, Dargin was quoted as saying “Just give me my baby and I know I am messing up,” a demand which the club staff refused.
Dargin would then flee the club without his daughter. Authorities apprehended the 24-year-old on his way off the premises. He now stands charged with child abuse and could face up to six years in state prison, where the likelihood of lap dance is remote.
