Father leaves 2 sons alone in car while inside strip club

Scarlett's Cabaret employees find children unattended in car

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Willie Lee Jordan, Jr. admitted to leaving his 3-month-old baby boy and 3-year-old boy alone in the car while he went to a strip club, according to the Fort Myers Police Department. 

The Florida Department of Children and Families was investigating Jordan, 23, who is facing two counts of child neglect in Lee County. 

Christopher Mays, the general manager of Scarlett's Cabaret, a strip club in Fort Myers, thought he had seen it all until last week. He told Wink News a security guard heard the children crying, and when they approached the car there was a baby upside down on his car seat. 

"His head is where his feet should be, butt up in the air," Mays said.

Mays stopped the dancers to announce that they were searching for the father. Investigators learned Jordan had been inside the strip club for about 20 minutes without checking on his boys. 

The toddler was able to unlock the door of the car about 11 p.m., before Jordan showed up and Fort Myers Police Department officers arrested him Nov. 9. He was released Friday on a $10,000 bond.
