Brianna DaleySAN TAN VALLEY, AZ – A couple were charged with child neglect after their toddler was found wandering outside his home at night while they were out playing Pokemon Go.

On Thursday night, a neighbor 25-year-old Brianna Daley and 27-year-old Brent Daley found the couple’s 2-year-old boy wandering around outside and called police.

According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived to find the boy screaming and crying while attempting to get back into his home. The boy was dirty, barefoot and wearing only a diaper and a T-shirt.

The officers found that the house was unlocked and went inside to see if there were any adults home. No one was home, but they did find a phone number for Brent Daley.

Police called Brent to tell him they were at his home with his toddler and, according to Sheriff Paul Babeu, Brent’s response was “Whatever” before hanging up.

A little while later Brianna and Brent arrived at the home and allegedly admitted they left their son at home so they could go play Pokemon Go in nearby neighborhoods.

The couple were arrested and charged with child endangerment and child neglect. They were later released on their own recognizance. Their son was placed in state protective custody.

“Our agency and many other law enforcement agencies have been warning people about personal safety while playing this interactive smartphone game, but we never would have imagined that parents would abandon a child to play Pokemon Go. This goes beyond comprehension,” Babeu said.
