James Irvine, 41, was arrested and charged with neglect after leaving the family pit bull to babysit his 10-month-old baby at home, while he went to a local bar to have drinks. The child's mother (whose name hasn't been released) told authorities that she was working Friday evening and left the child with her boyfriend, Irvine.
Remember that whole web-generated prank (we mean “campaign”) where writer David Thorpe helped a Walmart nestled in the remote location of Kodiak, Alaska win a visit from Cuban-American dynamo Pitbull by garnering the most “likes” on Facebook? Well, Thorpe was on hand for the event, which took place on July 30, but not on Walmart’s dime. Turns out the generous Pit himself paid for Thorpe to attend.
