Caretaking father TYRONE GARDNER was arrested for unlawful neglect of a child when he left his three children alone at home. Guess he didn't feel like watching them while he took care of manly things, like getting his car fixed. The four-year-old twins were found wandering around outside, unsupervised and with no shoes. The two-year-old only had a dirty diaper on.
The children were put in the custody of the Department of Social Services. No mention of mom. Is this a custodial dad? Or just an irresponsible one who has no business taking care of children?
