Tenn. Dad Goes Extra Mile To Drink, Watch NBA Finals [Cuff 'Em]
Meet Tennessean David Mark Dixon. Dude is 32, has two daughters and, we suppose, finds his life kinda slipping by. The glory days are behind him. No more hanging with the boys, watching the NBA Finals and getting hammered on a Tuesday night. Well, this week, David decided to have some ‘me’ time for Game One of Heat-Mavs. The only problem? He was supposed to be watching the kids while his wife was working.
We had to dig into this story, but finally secured the moneyshot from the Leaf-Chronicle.
A Clarksville father was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with neglecting his 7- and 9-year-old daughters.
At 1 a.m., Clarksville police responded to the Union Hall apartment of David Mark Dixon, 32.
Dixon allegedly admitted he left the two girls alone in an unlocked apartment without supervision while he went to watch a basketball game and consume alcohol.
The children were left alone from 10:30 p.m. to 1 a.m., the report said. The mother of the girls was contacted at work and came to the apartment to be with her daughters, the report said. The Department of Children Services was notified.
David left the house at 10:30. That would probably be somewhere around halftime.
Here’s our theory on this. David’s buddy Jeff calls and says “Hey, you coming out or just going to sit your ass at home and miss out on the crazy party we’re having here at Chuck’s Party Pit?”
David figures the girls are in bed, his wife is working third shift and he’ll just have a couple. Two turns into 8. Been there, minus the kids issue. No word on how Dixon fared for Game Two last night. We’ll keep an eye on his Facebook.
