TX Tow Truck Driver Finds Toddler & Infant Left In Car By Dad Who Went To Strip Club

And the "Dad of the Year" award goes to...
Here's the story from CBS 11:
When tow-truck driver John Young cruised into a dimly lit private lot across the street from a Northwest Dallas strip club Friday night, he didn't expect to see a small hand waving at him from the backseat of the vehicle he came to tow.

"With the light, I could see the three-year-old," Young said. "He was waving from the backseat."

Authorities say 36-year-old Michael Galloway abandoned his nine-month-old baby and three-year-old son in his vehicle while he sat inside Pandora's Gentlemen's Club from 10:15 p.m. to 11:45 p.m.

Galloway told police he was inside for just 20 minutes, but witnesses said Galloway was drinking in the strip club for nearly an hour-and-a-half.

"He said he was there trying to check on his wife who worked there. However, the officers soon determined that was not the case," said Dallas Police spokesman Lt. Kevin Janse. "She … was at home and she ultimately picked the kids up. After several lies from the father to the officers, the truth slowly started coming out."

Galloway was charged with two counts of child endangerment. He did not return phone messages left by CBS11 or answer his door.

Amazing people like this our out there. The father probably ended up with just a fine. Rediculous.
