A Florida man has been charged with child neglect after he left two children – one of whom has brain damage, is autistic and physically disabled – alone at home to visit a strip club.
Kalvin Dywane Guice, 38, was charged with two counts of felony child neglect at Pinellas County Court following his arrest at 1:26 am on Friday.
Court documents say Guice left the two children, a girl and a severely disabled boy, for four hours to travel nine miles to the 4-Play Gentlemen’s Lounge on Gandy Beach, St Petersburg, where he said he drank four or five Jack Daniels and Coke mixers.

The affadavit from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said the boy, who has brain damage, suffers from autism, is unable to speak and is physically disabled, was found in his room wearing a ‘urine-filled diaper.’
The court document said the girl was unable to look after either the boy, who needs constant supervision, or herself.
Guice admitted after his arrest that the children were unable to take care of themselves, especially in an emergency.

His relationship to the children was not revealed in the affadavit, but it said their mother was away attending her own mother’s funeral in the neighbouring state of Georgia.
She had left Guice to take care of the children while she was away.
Guice, who said he is a veteran US Army sergeant who now works at the Veterans’ Affairs Hospital, was released on $5,000 (£4,000) bail on Saturday.
A judge ordered that he have no contact with the two children.
