Florida man left kids in car while visiting strip club, police say

Infant, toddler found in back seat, officials say


FORT MYERS, Fla. – A Florida man left a 3-month-old baby and a 3-year-old child in the back seat of a car while he was inside a strip club, officials said.

Lee County jail records show that Fort Myers police arrested Willie Lee Jordan Jr., 23, shortly before 4 a.m. on Nov. 10 and charged him with two counts of child neglect.

Jordan told police he was inside the strip club for a matter of minutes, but Scarlett's general manager, Christopher Mays, told WBBH-TV that Jordan was there for at least 30 minutes.

A customer heard the infant crying and helped the older child unlock the car with the help of staff members. Police said the baby was found upside down.

The Department of Children and Families is investigating.

It's unclear if Jordan has a lawyer.
