Updated – William Edward Allen has gotten off without facing prison time. The update is at the bottom of the post.
Here’s another douchebag from Florida. I guess the moral of this story is that when you date a douchebag, expect to get fucked.
The Orange County Sheriff’s office received a call yesterday afternoon from someone saying that there was a suspicious man who seemed “out of it” and was holding an infant outside the Winn-Dixie store.
Allen, being the fine upstanding law-abiding citizen that he is ran through the grocery store and out the back door when police arrived at the scene. He then took off through the woods and backyards while holding the baby. The found him about an hour later but he didn’t have the baby and couldn’t fucking remember where he had put the infant. doh! I hate when that happens.
Later on they found the 11-day-old boy in a garbage bag. Gives new meaning to garbage pail kids, but probably not the one that was meant.
According to police the baby appeared OK but they took the infant to the hospital just to make sure and the mother was notified, who said that she and Allen (the boy’s father) got in an argument and he walked away with the infant.
What the hell?
So this dude was stoned, walked away with her baby and she didn’t call the police?
Again I say, what the hell?
William Edward Allen is being held on various charges and is currently not eligible for bond seeing as how he already had an outstanding warrant for violating his probation. The current charges include Possession of Cannabis less than 20 grams, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Attempted Felony Murder, Aggravated Battery to Cause Great Bodily Harm, Another count of Possession of Cannabis, Aggravated Child Neglect, Cruelty Toward Children through Aggravated Battery and Cruelty Toward a Child That Could Result in Bodily Harm. Clearly a real winner.
Now I don’t have a problem with pot heads. Not in the least but the thing is, get a babysitter if you are going to get stoned. Just like I wouldn’t have taken my children with me to the blogmeet this past weekend and then get hammered people need to understand that when they are responsible for a child they should act responsibly.
Update – Last week William Edward Allen took a plea deal and entered a guilty plea on charges of child neglect and possession of marijuana in return for having the other charges dropped. He gets off with time served and probation. According to the judge, “There is no way to justify your conduct, but I think it’s important to also take into account the need for the child to be provided for.“
