This guy should be up for worst dad of the year.

35-year-old Charles Jones was arrested on Halloween night for leaving his five-year-old daughter alone at a Haunted House in Brevard County. He apparently dropped her off there and, according to the police report, “never attempted to go back to the aforementioned haunted house.”

When police arrived at the scene, the child was being cared for by a witness, who was attempting to find the adults who were responsible for her.

Jones eventually called the police and agreed to meet them at the local precinct, where he was arrested for child neglect. Investigators say Jones left the child “unattended, with no reasonable effort to provide for her care for a minimum of two-and-a-half hours.”

Jones is scheduled for arraignment on December 3.
