Florida Man Arrested for Leaving Baby in Car in Strip Club Parking Lot

A Florida man was arrested after he left an infant inside a locked car in a Fort Myers strip club parking lot, police said.

Andrew Sosa, 21, was arrested on a child neglect charge after he left the four-month old girl inside a Kia Optima at Lookers strip club, according to NBC 2.

Fort Myers Police said an officer was flagged down after the baby was spotted in a car seat in the back of the vehicle just after 10:30 p.m. The officer couldn't find the car's owner so he smashed the window to get the baby out.

The baby was sweating and covered in vomit, and was taken to a nearby children's hospital for mild dehydration, NBC 2 reported. She is expected to be fine.

Detectives later discovered the baby girl had been left inside the car for three hours while Sosa was inside the strip club, police said.

Sosa, of Cape Coral, appeared in court Saturday, where his bond was set at $100,000. It was unknown whether he has an attorney.

The Department of Children and Families is handing the case.
