Parents Arrested For Abandoning 2 Year Old Son To Play Pokemon Go

1a1_optWhat in God’s name is wrong with this world and this generation at all— I know this will certainly not be the last hapless incident we have heard at the back of this increasing craze for Pokemon Go. About a week ago, a Uber passenger watched as the driver unconcernedly played this same game at the expense of both their lives and today parents of a 2 year old have been arrested at the back of leaving their baby just to go play the infamous Pokemon, who does that?.
The parents of a 2 year old boy, 27-year-old Brent Daley and his wife, 25-year-old Brianna Daley, were arrested on a charge of child neglect after leaving their two-year-old son home alone to play Pokemon Go, according to police in Arizona. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said that the couple was arrested, after leaving their sweaty and dirty 2 year old son home alone for an hour and half to go play the new internet sensation game, Pokémon Go. Neighbours called the police after they saw the 2 year old boy standing outside a home, screaming and crying at the top of his lungs, wearing just a shirt and diapers.
When the Police officers arrived at the scene, they found the 2-year-old boy outside, with the house unlocked, but no one was in the home. They said that he was barefoot, sweaty and dirty and the temperature was 96 degrees at the time.
When police contacted the father on the phone, all he said was “whatever.”
When the couple returned to their home, deputies say they admitted to leaving their son asleep inside their home near Chandler Heights and Gantzel while they played Pokemon GO in nearby neighbourhoods. The parents were both charged with child neglect and endangerment and are currently in jail.
The child has been placed in the custody of Child Protective Custody (CPS).
