LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Two Louisville parents are facing charges after police say they found them drinking inside a strip club while their baby was left in the hot car.
Police went to Déjà Vu on Taylor Boulevard around 11 p.m. May 31. When officers arrived, they say they found the infant strapped in the car seat crying and soaked in sweat. The car was not running.
Soon after police got there, officers say 43-year-old Laura DiPrimo, the child's mother, ran out of the strip club and jumped in the car, started it and put down the windows. A short time later officers say the baby's father, 28-year-old Thomas Lee exited the bar.
An arrest report says both DiPrimo and Lee admitted to drinking. The reports also states that Lee was wearing an ankle bracelet because he was supposed to be on home incarceration in Clark County, Indiana.
The child was OK, but both parents were arrested and charged with wanton endangerment.
At the time of the arrest, the heat index was 91 degrees. Officers say on the way to Louisville Metro Corrections, Lee complained that the police car was too hot.
