Brent Daley and his wife, Brianne Daley, left their toddler outside their home alone in 90-degree heat without water for two hours while they drove around nearby neighborhoods playing Pokemon Go.
A neighbor found the barefoot diaper-clad boy around 10:30 p.m. He allegedly was “screaming and crying [and] attempting to get into the residence.” Deputies found a phone number in the home for the father. Upon calling him and telling him his child appeared to be abandon, Mr. Daley responded with “Whatever” and hung up.
