Cops: Drunk grandpa passes out along U.S. 1, stranding baby in stroller
A West Palm Beach man taking his grandson for a stroll Monday was so drunk that he passed out on the pavement along U.S. 1 in Marathon -- with the toddler in the stroller right next to the highway, authorities say.
When deputies arrived after two people called in to report the unattended stroller just after noon, they found Raymond Dascott, 56, lying next to the stroller.
Inside the stroller with the 18-month-old child, says Deputy Becky Herrin from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office: Two cold Keystone Ice beers, which Dascott apparently had just bought from the Tom Thumb store at U.S. 1 and 26th Street.
Dascott was found at U.S. 1 and 25th, just one street up from where he was staying, on 24th Street. When roused, he reportedly told Deputy Bradford Colen he was "resting."
The child's grandmother, who knew Dascott had the boy but didn't know he was drunk, was found and showed up to claim the baby. Herrin didn't have details about the child's parents, but did say the boy's mother "is who called grandma to come to the rescue."
Dascott, whom jail records say is a carpenter, was charged with felony child neglect. He remained in the Monroe County Detention Center on Tuesday with no bond.
