Sometimes you can’t get between a fanboy and his movies.
In Salt Lake City, a father left his two-year-old strapped in the car while he went to go see “The Dark Knight” this past summer entered a guilty plea this past Wednesday.
Why so serious? Because while suspect David James Farnham claims that his son was asleep when he left him to go see the movie; when bystanders discovered the baby an hour later, the inside of the car was 87 degrees. The child was allegedly awake and crying at this point.
Farnham was being charged with reckless endangerment, and the baby is currently with his mother. The kicker is that the police interrupted the screening to arrest him. Party foul!
In all seriousness, this is very un-heroic behavior. We all know Batman’s a much better parent than that–
…Sigh, I give up.
